Pell Grant, Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant (IASG), and Children of Fallen Heroes Scholarship (CFHS)

As its original name, the Basic Educational Opportunity Program (BEOG), implies, the Pell Grant Program serves as the foundation of a needy student's financial aid package. Pell Grant is unaffected by other aid, and is "portable" in that once a student is determined to be eligible, the grant is available at any Title IV-participating school. BEOG was renamed in honor of Sen. Claiborne Pell, who was instrumental in establishing this program.
