College grants are provided by various entities based upon certain individual characteristics such as demonstrated financial need, ethnicity, and military service. One of the most well-known college grant applications is the Federal Pell Grant. The Pell grant, which is only available to students who can demonstrate a financial need, provides students with a maximum of $5,550 per year in educational aid in a single award year. The actual amount of the college grant will depend on the level of financial need, costs associated with the completion of an approved program and the enrollment status of a student (part-time or full-time).
