Grants (Corps of Cadets)
Federal Pell Grants
The Federal Pell Grant program provides federal grants for eligible undergraduate students. Eligibility is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using a nationally mandated formula applied uniformly to all applicants. Grant amounts are dependent on the student's expected family contribution (EFC), the cost of attendance (as determined by the institution), the student's enrollment status (full-time or part-time), and the number of semesters attended each year.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG)
The FSEOG Program provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate students to promote access to postsecondary education. Priority is given to those students with "exceptional need" (those with the lowest expected family contributions [EFCs]) and those who are also Federal Pell Grant recipients.
Eligible students will be notified of their award via Lesesne Gateway.
South Carolina Need-Based Grant Program
South Carolina Need-Based Grants are awarded to South Carolina residents, that demonstrate need, on a first-come, first-served basis. Need is demonstrated by filing the FAFSA each year. A student may receive up to $2,500 annually for full time status.
The Citadel competes in the Southern Conference in wrestling, baseball, men's basketball, men's and women's cross-country, football, women's soccer, men's and women's track, women's volleyball, men's tennis, and women's golf.
