Deadline extended for CARES Act emergency relief grants

Student News | Monday, February 22, 2021

The deadline to apply for a CARES Act Student Emergency Relief Grant has been extended. Funds are limited, and students can only submit one application per term.

Students who are Federal Aid/Title IV eligible, and otherwise qualified, and who are enrolled for Spring Semester may submit an application for a federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act grant that is part of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. These funds can assist eligible students with the COVID-19 pandemic-related expenses, including food, housing, course materials, technology, transportation, health care, and childcare. The new deadline is noon on Wednesday, March 10, or earlier if funds are exhausted.
