Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)

Federal SEOG is for undergraduate, first baccalaureate degree seeking students. The Financial Aid Office determines eligibility for this program based on the FAFSA information and funds available. Priority is given to Federal Pell Grant recipients who have demonstrated exceptional financial need.

Winona State receives a certain amount of SEOG funds each year from the U.S. Department of Education's office of Federal Student Aid.  Once the full amount of the school's SEOG funds have been awarded to students, no more SEOG awards can be made for that year. In other words, SEOG funds are first come, first served.  This system works differently from the Federal Pell Grant program, which provides funds to every eligible student.

Make sure that you apply for federal student aid as early as you can. Winona State considers you a late filer if you complete your FAFSA after May 15
