Federal Pell Grants
Federal Pell Grants generally are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not yet earned a bachelor’s or a professional degree. Learn more
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) are awarded to undergraduate students who are enrolled in their first undergraduate program of study and who have exceptional financial need. Funding is extremely limited. Pell Grant recipients with the lowest expected family contribution (EFC) will be considered first for FSEOG until funds are exhausted. Having a low EFC is not a guarantee that a student will receive this grant. Grant amounts are determined by Walden based on availability of funding. Just like a Pell Grant, this grant does not have to be repaid in most circumstances.
The Federal TEACH Grant Program is a non-need-based program that currently provides grants of up to $ 3,736 per year, * per sequestration, to graduate students enrolled in an eligible program, as defined by Walden University, and who intend to teach full time in high-need subject areas at schools that serve students from low-income families.

In addition to Federal Pell Grants, you may be able to receive financial aid through a local state grant program funded by your state of residence. Check with the appropriate state agency.
