PA State Grant Application Extension - The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) has been reviewing the impact of COVID-19 on students as it relates to the PA State Grant Program. In order to give students and families more flexibility during the COVID-19 pandemic, PHEAA’s Board of Directors also acted to extend the May 1 PA State Grant application deadline by 2 weeks to May 15 for the 2020-21 Academic Year. To apply for a PA State Grant, applicants must first complete the 2020-21 FAFSA® (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Applicants can access this form online at pheaa.org/FAFSA or fafsa.gov.
