A Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is a grant for undergraduate students with exceptional financial need. Institutions are given a restricted amount of FSEOG funds each academic year by the U.S. Department of Education. William Paterson University awards undergraduate students FSEOG based upon exceptional financial need as demonstrated through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Priority is given to students who receive Federal Pell Grants. Since funds are limited, the University's Priority Filing Deadline for the FAFSA is May 1.
