No, your school's financial aid department is the one that will award it. Are you a U.S. Citizen or eligible non-citizen (even though eligible non-citizens are able to receive the Pell Grant, only a U.S. Citizen can receive the ACG/SMART grant)? And you are enrolled in a four year degree granting institution?
You should see about talking to a higher up in the financial aid office (a senior counselor, assistant director, or director) regarding the SMART - maybe you talked to a new financial aid officer who isn't familiar with the program for some reason. The ACG and SMART grants are still fairly new federal programs (new for the 0607 school year). Good luck!
As far as the qualifications for the SMART grant are concerned, you are eligible to receive this grant. What university are you attending? Have you talked to anyone else in your financial aid department?
It is important to find out more information online about this loan so that you can submit your application for this grant.
