The Federal Student Financial Aid Programs available at The E.D.P. School are as follows:
Federal Pell Grant provides grant aid money to assist students who have not already received a Bachelor’s Degree. (Note: If you are eligible for a Pell Grant and your parent or guardian was a member of the U.S. Armed forces who died as a result of military service in Iraq or Afghanistan after Sept. 11, 2001, you are eligible for a Pell Grant for the award year).
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) provides grant funding awarded by the school (Campus-Based Aid) from limited funds provided by the federal government. The FSEOG must be awarded to undergraduates with exceptional financial need (that is, students with the lowest EFC) and gives priority to students who receive Federal Pell Grants.
Iraq & Afghanistan Service Grant provides grant money to students who are not Pell-eligible, whose parent or guardian died as a result of military service in Iraq or Afghanistan after 9/11, and who, at the time of the parent or guardian’s death, were less than 24 years old or were enrolled at least part time at an institution of higher education.
The Adult Career and Continuing Education Services – Rehabilitation Services Program is part of the New York State Education Department. ACCES-VR, formerly known as the Office of Vocational and Educational Services for Individuals with Disabilities (VESID), assists individuals with disabilities to obtain and maintain employment.
