State Grant Update

Since the appropriation for the 2015-16 Pennsylvania State Grant Program was signed by the Governor, all State Grant award amounts are now final. Please be aware that the money for your award will be sent to your school for payment to your school account. PHEAA expects to begin disbursing funds to your school in early February for the Fall 2015 term. Your school will then credit your account after first certifying your eligibility.

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.
