The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is a need-based grant for undergraduate students who have not completed a first baccalaureate or professional degree and meet all other federal eligibility requirements. FSEOG funds are limited in supply and are awarded on a “first come, first served” basis to those students who show exceptional financial need; priority is given to Pell Grant recipients. Although the federal government allows colleges and universities to determine the amount of the award, the minimum award is $100, and the maximum annual award is $4,000. At Monmouth, the average FSEOG award is $600.
Students who file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be automatically considered for FSEOG. FSEOG renewal is dependent on the student filing the FAFSA each year prior to the funds being exhausted and continuing to meet the federal eligibility requirements.
