Grants

Grants are a form of financial aid that is provided by the federal or state governments that do not have to be repaid (unless, for example, you withdraw from school and owe a refund). Contact the Financial Aid Specialist today, (309) 779-7740, to determine if you qualify.

Federal Pell Grants

Federal Pell Grants are generally awarded to eligible undergraduate students who display financial need and have not yet earned a bachelor's, graduate, or professional degree. The actual amount of the grant is based on the cost of attendance, enrollment status, FAFSA results, and the Federal Pell Grant regulations.

The maximum amount of Pell Grant a student may receive in his/her lifetime is limited to the equivalent of six full academic years.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The FSEOG program is administered directly by the financial aid office at Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences. FSEOG is generally awarded to eligible undergraduate students who display exceptional financial need and have not yet earned a bachelor's, graduate, or professional degree. Trinity College receives a limited allocation from the federal government and once the funds are exhausted there is no more available to award for the year.
