No.  The federal student aid programs work together to provide a customized comprehensive financial aid package for each student, that taps the partnerships of institutions, states, and families, to ensure qualified low-income students have the same opportunities as their higher-income peers.  Since 1972, the Higher Education Act has authorized the Pell Grant as the foundational grant program to partner with 1) campus-based programs in which institutions match federal dollars for Supplemental Opportunity Grants, Federal Work Study and Perkins Loans; 2) the LEAP state grant in which states match federal dollars for need-based grants; and 3) with family contributions to get low-income students into and through college.  Click here to see example packages for different types of institutions.
