Apply for Emergency Relief Funding

Students that demonstrate unexpected financial need can apply for funding of up to $2,000 per student. Due to limited grant funding availability, the emergency relief funding may be in the form of a federal or institutional loan. If an application is approved, students will be notified of the funding source and will be given the option to accept or decline the loan funds. If loan funds are accepted, there may be additional required steps that a student must complete for loan proceeds to be disbursed to them. Students who have received emergency grants under the COVID-19 relief fund may not qualify, but are encouraged to apply. Funding uses may include expenses related to emergency travel, unreimbursed medical expenses, new technology including computer or laptop purchase as well as internet connectivity, and childcare or eldercare expenses. Cost of living expenses including rent and food or utilities may or may not be considered in the final approval. Students can submit those requests for consideration and will be notified if the expenses can be covered.
