What are the 'initial economic qualifications' (as the Student Aid Report says) for a Pell grant? If the Cost of Attendance at a college say is $37000/year and a family's EFC say is $30000/year (according to FAFSA's SAR), will the family get federal aid for the $7000 need? What all types of aid will this include?

Hmmm, I don't know much about Pell Grants, but if the family's EFC is $30K I don't think they would be applicable.

I make $40 thousand a year and have 2 kids in college..why don't we qualify for a Pell Grant?

If our income is $12,969 a year do I qualify for the Pell Grant.

I believe you have to have less than $25k-$40k in assets on the FAFSA and have made below a certain income guideline. They are not numbers that are revealed, probably so people cannot manufacture a report with those numbers. I believe that under $20k annually in income will do it and possibly up to the $30k range. It depends on the number of family members, too!

I really don't understand the qualifications. My parents may make a certain amount of money, but cannot afford to pay for my education. Should'nt they determine my results from my income? You can have parents who will provide a roof over your head, but not necessarily provide for anything else. Shouldn't that be a factor?

If you are applying for Pell Federal financial aid grant PLEASE be aware of Question #35 "Have you ever been convicted of drugs?" You could be denied financial aid,if you do not answer this question. It does not matter if you have been arrested or not so be aware! I am concurrently fighting this legistration to be changed!If you would like to join in making a change post your comments.

HI, I made $ 16000 last year, and am 24 years, indepedant. Will I be qualified to get Pell Grants. What is maximum requirement for a person like me, who is independant, without parents and children, to get Pell Grants. I will appreciate if you respond to my question through my e-mail.
I really have to know, how much should I make this year so I get qualified to Pell Grants. I tried hard, there is no other source to help me out. firstname.lastname@example.org

Here are some guidelines:
an EFC calculator which estimates if you would be Pell-eligible:
and the website for the student guide to fed aid:
These should answer most questions. I would reiterate that the OP, with an EFC of 30,000, would almost certainly not be Pell-eligible.
