State Grant Update

The Pennsylvania General Assembly appropriates funds to PHEAA for the Pennsylvania State Grant Program. All Fall and Winter State Grant awards are now finalized. All Spring term awards are subject to change. If your Spring award changes, PHEAA will notify you by email. If eligible, award money will be sent directly to your school. Your school will 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.
