Year-round Pell Grant returning to AWC

Yuma, AZ (February 8, 2018) – The year-round Pell Grant is returning so that students can receive up to 150 percent of a regular Pell Grant award during the course of an academic year. This will allow students to continue taking classes in the summer to catch up or accelerate their progress towards graduation.

What does this mean? Students may receive a Pell Grant Award during the Summer semester, even if they were enrolled as full-time students during Fall & Spring.

What does it take to be eligible? Students must be in good academic standing and registered for six or more credits during the Summer term.

For more information on funding eligibility, contact the AWC Financial Aid office at financialaid@azwestern.edu or at (928) 344-7634.
