Money that does not have to be paid back to the federal government
PELL Grants must be awarded in two equal amounts. The amount per semester students may be eligible for are as follows (all reference to number of credits refer to total number of credits for the semester, including Semester, Block, Modular, and Fusion classes):
Full-time (12+ credits) = 100% of PELL for term
3/4-time (7 to 9 credits) = 75% of PELL for term
1/2-time (6 to 8 credits) = 50% of PELL for term
1/4-time (1-5 credits) = 25% (Not all eligible for 1/4-time payment)
The FWS Program provides funds that are earned through part-time employment to assist students in financing the costs of postsecondary education. Hourly wages will not be less than the federal minimum wage.
Funds appropriated by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware and the federal government are combined to assist Delaware residents who are, or will be, full-time students at colleges in Delaware or in certain out-of-state college programs which are not offered at state-supported Delaware institutions. These funds are administered by the Delaware Higher Education Commission which determines eligibility and makes awards.
Financial need is the primary criterion for assistance. The priority application deadline is April 15 of each year.
