Federal Pell Grants*
The maximum Pell Grant award for the 2011-2012 award year (July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012) is $5,550. The amount students get, though, will depend not only on their financial need, but also on their costs to attend school, their status as a full-time or part-time student, and their plans to attend school for a full academic year or less.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are available on a limited basis to exceptionally needy students.
Illinois State Monetary Awards*
Illinois State Monetary Awards ($4,720) are state funds awarded to Illinois residents attending college at least half-time in Illinois and who have demonstrated financial need.
Note: All Lincoln College students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and name Lincoln College as the college choice (Title IV code 001709). Awards are disbursed by semester and are renewable based on satisfactory academic achievement and the recommendation of appropriate Lincoln College personnel. Lincoln College assistance is granted after other sources of assistance are exhausted. Because Lincoln College aid is used as part of a total financial package, amounts may vary according to the availability of external funds. Stated amounts are maximum annual values and are subject to yearly review/change.
