Iraq and Afghanistan Service Award

A student who is not eligible for a Pell Grant but whose parent or guardian was a member of the U.S. Armed Forces and died because of service performed in Iraq or Afghanistan after September 11, 2001 may be eligible to receive the Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant. The grant award is equal to the amount of a maximum Pell Grant for the award year – not to exceed the cost of attendance for that award year.

Additional Student Eligibility Requirements

  • be under 24 years old; or
  • enrolled in college at least part-time at the time of the parent's or guardian's death.

The Department of Defense will identify potentially eligible students via an ISIR Match Flag in the FAFSA data transmitted to the school. The school will determine the actual award amount.
