Pell Grant

As its original name, the Basic Educational Opportunity Program (BEOG), implies, the Pell Grant Program serves as the foundation of a needy student's financial aid package. Pell Grant is unaffected by other aid, and is "portable" in that once a student is determined to be eligible, the grant is available at any Title IV-participating school. BEOG was renamed in honor of Sen. Claiborne Pell, who was instrumental in establishing this program.
