Pell Grant News

Written by CB Experts

A recent Congressional agreement will maintain the Pell Grant maximum at $5,500.  This is good news, but there are some down side for the Pell.

Now the Pell Grant

  • will only be available for six years, not nine
  • a high school or GED will be required for eligibility
  • the expected family contribution for an automatic zero will be capped at $23,000 (instead of $30,000)
  • the interest subsidy on the six-month grace period after gradation will end
