Grants

Grants are one type of financial aid that does not need to be repaid. These funds can come from federal, state, or college sources and are awarded to students based on financial need (depending on the grant requirements). Grants are the foundation of our financial aid programs, and help to ensure that an economically diverse student population has the opportunity to meet the educational costs at Aims Community College.

Federal Pell Grant (PELL)

The Pell Grant is a need-based federal grant program for students who are seeking their first undergraduate degree. The annual award amount is determined by your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), cost of attendance and enrollment status. Students who establish eligibility may be funded. For 2013-2014, annual awards range from $605 to $5,645 for students with an EFC between 0 and 5081.

Initial awards are determined as a result of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and are based on full-time enrollment. Awards can change if any criteria used to determine your eligibility, such as academic program, degree status, financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), lifetime Pell limits, income and/or family information changes.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG):

This is a need–based federal grant awarded to students seeking a first undergraduate degree in an aid eligible program who have exceptional financial need. Priority is given to Pell-eligible students who file their FAFSA early. A separate application is not required for these funds. Limited funding is available and funds are awarded on a first come, first served basis.

Colorado State Grant (CSG):

These state funds are available to Colorado resident undergraduate students with a documented EFC within 150% of Pell Grant eligibility. Awards are made after the Pell Grant eligibility is determined. A separate application is not required for these funds. Limited funding is available and funds are awarded on a first come, first served basis.
