Regarding the family income level that generally qualifies, it is typically under $40,000 per year. But family income is not the only criterion considered, not by a long shot. They also consider where you live, the assets your family has, if one or both of your parents work, how many people live in the household, and more. So never decide not to apply because you just don't think you qualify. You could definitely be leaving money on the table. Plus remember that some top colleges are using Pell Grant awards as indications of low income students they want to attract to their school.
