Educational Grants

In addition to scholarships, Waynesburg offers generous educational grants.

In addition to our generous Achievement Awards and scholarships, Waynesburg University also offers need-based grants to students who qualify financially. These need-based grants do not have to be repaid.

Waynesburg University Grant 

The University's need-based grant program is awarded to full-time, traditional, undergraduate students who demonstrate unmet financial need. The amount varies depending on the institutional packaging policy, availability of funding, the family's financial circumstances and the student's place of residence.

Pell Grant

This federal grant program is awarded to high-need, undergraduate, first-degree students. The amount is determined by the student's expected family contribution (EFC) as calculated by the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Currently, the maximum amount is $5,920.


The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is a campus-based, federally funded aid program that awards funds to Pell Grant recipients with high financial need. The award normally ranges from $100 up to $2,000 per academic year and is determined annually by the funding level.
