Pennsylvania State Grant Program

State Grant Update

The Pennsylvania General Assembly appropriates funds to PHEAA for the Pennsylvania State Grant and other programs. Until the state budget has been signed by the Governor, PHEAA is unable to confirm awards or disburse funds to schools and employers for the current 2016-17 Academic Year. This affects all state and federal programs administered by PHEAA.

A grant is a type of financial aid award that you don't need to repay, as long as you meet all of the eligibility requirements.

Did You Know?

  • The State Grant deadlines are different for first-time applicants, renewal applicants, and summer-term applicants.
  • If you miss the State Grant deadline for the academic year, apply anyway. Late applications (for terms other than summer) may qualify for awards if funding permits.
