Federal & State Grants

Johnson College participates in Federal and State grant programs. The following is a comprehensive list of the Grants usually awarded:


Pell Grant

The Pell Grant is a need-based grant offered to eligible undergraduate students enrolled in a degree-seeking program. Eligibility is based on a formula established each year by the Federal Government as well as the student’s enrollment status. Full-time Pell grant amounts can change annually. For 2017–18 (July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018), the award amount is up to $5,920.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

Offered to enrolled full-time students with exceptional need and is based on available funding levels. Preference is given to Federal Pell Grant recipients in accordance with the guidelines established by the Federal government and the Financial Aid Office. Federal SEOG grants range from $100 to $4,000. The Financial Aid Office determines award eligibility.

It should be noted that this grant may be eliminated with the approval of the Stop Gap Spending Bill.


PHEAA State Grant

Renewable, need-based grant for Pennsylvania residents. The FAFSA is the application with a filing deadline of May 1. Estimated eligibility is listed on the award letter. Final determination of the grant amounts is made by PHEAA, who will notify students of their eligibility beginning in mid-May.


Johnson College students enrolled in one-year certificate programs may qualify. The program, which is funded and administered by PHEAA, provides awards to students enrolled in programs of study in the following career areas:
•Advanced Materials and Diversified Manufacturing
