Florida Gateway College is pleased to be able to offer a variety of grants and scholarship opportunities to students. Learn more about all of the available opportunities or get in touch with our financial aid office.
There are primarily two types of grants available to assist students with paying for their college education – federal and state.
Federal Grants are awarded based solely on financial need. Grants do not have to be repaid unless, for example, you are awarded funds incorrectly, did not complete attendance requirements, etc.
Pell Grants – These grants form the foundation of federal student aid. They generally are available only to undergraduate students.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) – These are awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need. Pell recipients receive priority for FSEOG awards.
Florida Student Assistant Grant (FSAG) – These need-based grants are available to degree-seeking, resident undergraduates who demonstrate substantial financial need and are enrolled in a participating postsecondary institution. Visit the FSAG web page for more details.
Florida Public Postsecondary Career Education Student Assistant Grant Program (FSAGCE) – This is a need-based grant available to Florida residents enrolled in certificate programs of 450 clock hours or more at a participating Florida college or career center operated by school districts. To learn more, visit the FSAGCE web page.
First Generation Matching Grant (FGMG) – This need-based grant program is available to degree-seeking, resident, undergraduate students who demonstrate substantial financial need, are enrolled in eligible participating postsecondary institutions. Eligible students will have a parent(s) who has not earned a baccalaureate or higher degree. Learn more at FGMG.
Note: State Grants are awarded only when state funding is available.
