Federal Pell Grant Program

Combination Welder II Program is the only program eligible for Federal Pell Grants. Combination Welder I Program is eligible for Direct Loans only.

The Federal Pell Grant program is a grant program where the students do not have to repay the grant money earned. Pell Grants are awarded to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or a professional degree.  A perspective student is not eligible for Pell Grants if he/she is incarcerated in a federal or state penal institution or subject to involuntary civil commitment upon completion of a period of incarceration for forcible or nonforcible sexual offense.

The amount of Grant monies a student may receive depends on their financial need, Cost of Attendance, full-time/part-time (all students at LWT are full time), and academic year and program length.

A student may not receive Federal Pell Grants from more than one school at a time. Effective July 1, 2012 a student is not eligible to receive Pell Grants for more than 12 semesters, roughly 6 years.
