Pell Grants for Summer Students

By Jillian Mikels

Do you have any free time in the summer? Are you bored with your summer job?

Now Pellissippi students can receive government Pell Grants for summer semesters.

“Pell Grants used to only be offered for fall and spring semesters, but this year students can now receive aid for their summer term as well,” said Paul Mckinney, head of the financial aid office.

In order to receive summer Pell Grants, numerous requirements must be met. Pell Grants from previous semesters must have been used and the student must have advanced to the next grade level.

Having Pell Grants offered for the summer terms opens up many opportunities for new and existing students.
