Pell grants came about in the Higher Education Act of 1972, after the SDS (and similar) sit-ins, takeovers of colleges.
Pell grants are made to students, not the colleges, so it can’t be tied to allowing ROTC on campus. Other forms of Federal Aid and Grants to the institutions have been tied to allowing ROTC on campus, but at a later date than this anti-Viet Nam War unrest (Might have been First Gulf War, but I’m not sure and not interested enough to research it).
