Student Guide: Financial Aid from the U.S. Department of Education 

What is a Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant?

A Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is for undergraduates with exceptional financial need--that is, students with the lowest Expected Family Contributions (EFCs)--and gives priority to students who receive Federal Pell Grants.  An FSEOG doesn't have to be paid back.

Federal grants consist of Pell Grant and the Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG).  Both grants are need based, in most cases they do not require repayment.  Awards range from $575 to $5,730 for Pell Grant and $400 for FSEOG.

What's the difference between the FSEOG and Federal Pell Grant?

The difference between the FSEOG and Federal Pell G​rant is the U.S. Department of Education guarantees that each participating school will receive enough money to pay the Federal Pell Grants of its eligible students. There's no guarantee every eligible student will be able to receive a FSEOG; students at each school are paid based on the availability of funds at that school.
