Federal Grants

The Federal Pell Grant is designed to provide financial aid to students so they may attend a college or university of their choice. Awards are determined by the Federal Government via completion of the FAFSA form. Final determination of the amount depends upon the funds appropriated by the federal government. There is a limit to the number of years students can receive the Federal Pell Grant.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are awarded to Pell Grant recipients. The amount of the award varies.

Hesston College Church Matching Grants

Hesston College will match up to $500 per semester ($1,000 per academic year) per student any monies given as direct aid by a congregation to its student(s). If church grants exceed $1,000 per year, Hesston matches the first $1,000 at 1:1 and all remaining dollars at 1:4 up to tuition, less Hesston College scholarships and/or grants.

To receive the match, the student and/or the congregation must notify Hesston College of the scholarship by the first day of the term for which the student will receive the scholarship.
