Pell Grant Experiment
Pell Grant Experiment
Effective Summer 2017, Savannah Technical College will no longer participate in the Pell Grant Experiment.
The United States Department of Education has selected a handful of colleges across the country to participate in two very exciting and beneficial Pell Grant Experiments and Savannah Technical College has been chosen to participate.
The purpose of the experiments is to determine the impact of two different experimental expansions to the Pell Grant eligibility criteria for income-eligible students enrolling in occupational training and help inform policy officials on the effects of expanding Pell Grant access on educational attainment, student debt, employment, and earnings.
Temporarily expands Pell Grant eligibility to students who already possess a bachelor’s degree and who enroll in a short-term vocational or career programs.
Temporarily expands Pell Grant eligibility to students who enroll in certain short-term vocational or career training programs.
To be considered, you must:
1. Complete a Savannah Tech application for admission and be accepted to one of the programs listed below.
2. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form and meet all federal eligibility requirements.
Eligible students who complete the FAFSA form and submit the Pell Grant Experiment Consent Form by the deadline will be forwarded to the Department of Education contractor for selection. In both experiments, the Department of Education will select the participants using a lottery method. While not every applicant will be chosen, the experiment creates an opportunity for a student, who would not normally qualify, to receive the Pell Grant.
