Summary: This letter announces Federal Student Aid's instructor-led, online training on implementation of the year-round Pell Grant. The HEOA authorizes schools to disburse up to two Pell Grants in a single award year for the 2009-2010 Award Year and forward for Pell-eligible students.

Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce instructor-led, online training on implementation of the year-round Federal Pell Grant (Pell Grant). The Higher Education Opportunity Act (the HEOA), Pub. L. 110-315, enacted on August 14, 2008, authorizes schools to disburse up to two Pell Grants in a single award year for the 2009-2010 Award Year and forward for Pell-eligible students. Final regulations related to this change to the Pell Grant Program were published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2009. The focus of this training will be implementation of the year-round Pell Grant for the 2009-2010 Award Year, including Summer 2010, and is intended for all schools that participate in the Pell Grant Program.

Federal Student Aid staff will present this information in one 90-minute session, with one version of the training designed for term-based schools and the other version designed for clock-hour/non-term schools. Each version will be offered several times to provide ample opportunity for those interested in attending.

The webinar “Year-Round Pell Grant for Term-Based Schools” will be offered:

  • Monday, February 8, 2010, 1:30 P.M. (ET)

  • Friday, February 19, 2010, 1:30 P.M. (ET)

If unable to attend, we request that the trainee cancel his or her registration so that individuals who wish to attend may do so.
