Cal Grant A and B Qualified, but Awarded B
So this is my Cal Grant Award Status:
Cal Grant A: Qualified - Not Awarded
Cal Grant B: Awarded - On Hold
Cal Grant C: Not Awarded
For Cal Grant A I would receive $10,302 for 4 years.
For Cal Grant B I recieve $1,551 for living expenses and no tuition money for the first year. Then the next 3 years I would receive $1,551 for living expenses + tuition fees.
I know I am supposedly given the award that would benefit me the most for the long run but I calculated everything and I don't see how this is the case:
Cal Grant A: $10,302 x 4 = $41,208
Cal Grant B: ($1,551 x 4) + ($10,302 x 3) = $37,110
So in the end, Cal Grant A awards more money? If this is true, why would I be awarded B and not A if I qualified for both? Thanks!
