Quick information on Pell Grants:
A Pell Grant, unlike a loan does not have to be repaid.
A Pell Grant can be renewed annually.
The maximum Pell grant for the 2019-2020 award year (July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020) is $6,195 - The amount depends on your financial need, costs to attend school, status as a full-time or part-time student, and plans to attend school for a full academic year or less.
The US government also offers student loans to fund your education. You can pay these back at very low interest rates.

ResourceFinderUSA.net is a consumer information site that offers free ratings and recommendations of colleges and universities. While we receive advertising revenue from most of the schools we rate and recommend, our editors thoroughly research each school and offer their honest opinions when rating each one.
