Mount Union Pell Opportunity Grant

The Mount Union Pell Opportunity Grant bridges the entire gap between tuition costs and what families of modest financial means can afford to pay toward a college degree. After qualified students have tapped funds from the Federal Pell Grant and loan programs, Mount Union Pell Opportunity Grants will cover remaining financial needs to fully pay for the University’s tuition and technology fee.

Mount Union has a rich history of serving Pell eligible students. In fact, the University was recently recognized as a Top Performer on Social Mobility among Midwest Regional Colleges by U.S. News & World Report, which measures how well institutions graduate students who received Federal Pell Grants.

Mount Union Pell Opportunity Grant Requirements

  • The grant is awarded to new, first-year students beginning in the fall of 2020.
  • Pell eligible students with a parent income of $55,000 or less are eligible.
  • Both in-state and out-of-state students can receive the grant.
  • The grant requires a high school GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  • To be eligible, students must file the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA).

Our goal at the University is to extend educational opportunity to bright students from hardworking families. At present, a quarter of our students come from families with incomes under $40,000. We want to make sure the school stays within reach of those students and their families.
