Pell Grant

The largest and most common grant program from the federal government.


Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant is awarded to a limited number of students. In order to be considered, you must complete the FAFSA, submit it early, and have exceptional need based upon your EFC.


The Tennessee Student Assistance Award is awarded to Tennessee residents with exceptional need on a first-come-first-served basis. In order to be considered for TSAA, students must complete the FAFSA, and sumit it by the priority deadline, which is in the FAFSA booklet.


The Federal Work Study program is awarded to students who would like a part-time job at a RSCC site. If you are interested in applying for Federal Work Study, you need to go to Raidernet under the Financial Aid Tab to complete the application. The Federal Work-Study Application is now open. Students selected will be notified by an award letter.
