MIT Student Financial Services Scholarships, grants and fellowships

Federal grants for undergraduates

MIT administers four federal grant programs you’ll automatically be considered for when you apply for financial aid each year. If you’re eligible, we include these federal grants in your aid package. 

Pell Grant
– A grant from $400 to $5,550 per year to undergraduates with the greatest financial need.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Award (Federal SEOG)
– A grant of up to $4,000 per year to undergraduates with the greatest financial need.

Since we administer the Federal SEOG program and choose the recipients, we don’t reward you by reducing your self-help; the Federal SEOG reduces your MIT scholarship.
