Grants

Three Types of Grants

Federal Grants

Federal Pell Grant - This is the basic Federal grant program for undergraduate students enrolled either full-time, part-time or less than part-time. Eligibility is based on financial need and is awarded to students with lower expected family contributions.

Application: FAFSA
Deadline: June 30 of academic year or last day of enrollment, whichever comes first. 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) - This grant is available to undergraduate students enrolled at least half-time (6 or more credits) who are also eligible for a Federal Pell Grant and is based upon financial need.  Funds are limited

Application: FAFSA
Deadline: May 1


State Grants

Pennsylvania State Grants -  This is a grant awarded to undergraduates who are Pennsylvania residents with financial need as determined by the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA). Students can be enrolled full-time or part-time (at least six credits). Students must complete at least 50% of their coursework in the classroom. Students are not eligible for PA State Grants if more than 50% of their coursework is on-line. PHEAA randomly selects applications for income validation and will email the student using the email address provided on the FAFSA to request the required documentation. The student must mail the additional documentation directly to the PHEAA State Grant Division in Harrisburg, PA. Failure to submit this additional documentation will delay state grant awards. 

First-time recipients: Students must also complete the PA State Grant form which contains additional information required by PHEAA. Students will receive an email from PHEAA and must complete this form on-line at www.pheaa.org. Failure to complete this additional information will delay state grant awards.

Application: FAFSA
Deadline: May 1

Other State Grants - Other states (Connecticut, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, Vermont and West Virginia) have grants that can be transferred to La Roche University. Contact your high school guidance counselor or your state's higher education assistance agency for more information. 

Application: FAFSA
Deadline: Varies with each state


La Roche Grants

La Roche University Grant - This is a need-based grant awarded to undergraduate, full-time students to help them meet their educational expenses. Funds are limited and not automatically renewable each year.
