===== Pell Grant Awards ===== ===== Pell Grant Awards =====

 +**Update April 2019**
 +
 + The maximum Pell Grant award amount for the 2019 to 2020 school year has been announced. $6195 is the new largest amount a student may receive as a Pell Grant award. The minimum is $650. Awards are based on financial need as well as a few other criteria including the cost of going to the college the applicant plans to attend and the student’s enrollment status. Remember that Pell Grants are also available for summer terms in 2019, and students are permitted to live in residence halls during their summer studies. Also remember that summer sessions will be included in calculating your lifetime award limit, which is based on years rather than on dollar amounts.
Do you look at various lists ranking schools for various criteria? It’s interesting to note that the percentage of students who qualify for Pell Grants is one of the key criteria for evaluation for recognition as a “Top School for Environment.” In December of 2016 the Wall Street Journal, in its “Times Higher Education” initial ranking of higher education institutions, named La Sierra University the top one in the West based on its level of diversity. The Diversity rating is based on a number of factors including the race ethnicity of both faculty and students, how many international students attend the school and the percent that qualify for Pell Grants (indicating income level).
