  • That would be a PELL grant. You have to choose a course of study and be accepted to apply for grants. like that. At least that is the way it used to be.

  • You need to fill out the FAFSA to see if you qualify for a PELL grant (not Pale). If you qualify and are enrolled in an accredited school, they money will be paid to the school you're attending. They don't issue a check to you.

  • Yes go to Fasa.ed.gov this is the only legit site to do this. You fill out several forms online, and you can list up to ten schools that will recieve your finanical aid information. Within 48 hours you will have your fafsa info back to you telling you your expected contribution. The actual schools will then contact you with the financial aid package telling you wheather or not you will recieve the Pell Grant.

  • You are going to school right? If you fill out the FAFSA you will know if you qualify when the review your information. I can tell you from my experience in school no one knows in 24-48 hours if they are approved.
