How do I apply?

Apply for FSEOG by filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Refer to the instructions contained on the following pages of this site:

You don’t have to indicate on the application that you wish to apply for FSEOG. CUNY automatically considers students who are Pell Grant eligible for this award.

Please note that CUNY receives a fixed amount of money each academic year to make FSEOG awards. Once this money is awarded, there is no more for that academic year. FSEOG is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. You must file your FAFSA early to be considered.
