Pell Grants: What You Need to Know

Intimidated by financial aid? Don’t worry. We’re here to help. Here’s what you need to know about Pell Grants and how to apply for them.

Jenks Beauty College offers financial aid to those who qualify.

What is a Pell Grant?

Pell Grants are a form of federal aid that do not have to be repaid (see exceptions here). Pell Grants are given to undergraduate students and those who are expanding their education by enrolling in a teacher training program.

That means, at Jenks Beauty College, only students who qualify in our Cosmetology and Instructor programs may receive a grant.

The money you can receive from a Pell Grant varies by year. This year, there has been a change in how much a qualifying student can receive.

Updated Pell Grant Information

This award year, (July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018), eligible students can receive 150 percent of their Federal Pell Grant Scheduled Award. In order to qualify for these additional funds, you must already qualify for Pell Grants for the year, and you must be enrolled in at least part time courses.

For more information on the updated Pell Grant information, please see here.
