Three western New York institutions — SUNY College at Geneseo, St. Bonaventure University and Rochester Institute of Technology — are currently sending out information about the website in their newsletters and other communications as part of a pilot project.

That would streamline the application process for students who receive federal Pell Grants, who previously needed to pull information from other government websites to prove their eligibility.
