Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG)

(First-year students, up to $750; Second-year students, up to $1300 )

The Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG ) is federally funded free assistance, awarded to first or second year undergraduate students, who have completed the FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA and are eligible for the Federal Pell Grant. Recipients must be U.S. citizens who are enrolled in the first or second academic year of their degree program and who have completed a rigorous high school program as defined by the U.S. Department of Education. First–year students must have graduated after January 1, 2006 and not been previously enrolled in an undergraduate program. Second-year students must have graduated after January 1, 2005 and have at least a 3.0 GPA at the end of their first year.

What do I need to do to keep my award?

Students may receive the ACG for the awarded terms as long as they maintain full-time enrollment and meet all eligibility criteria.

All federal grants are contingent upon the results of the FAFSA application. If your FAFSA information changes as a result of verification, your award may change.

All students must maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) as required by the U.S. Department of Education and according to the college SAP policy for receipt of federal aid.

You are no longer eligible for federal grants if you have earned your first bachelor’s degree.
