CARES Act Emergency Relief Grants

Phase 2 of CARES Act Emergency Relief Grants is open for students who were not enrolled or otherwise eligible in spring 2020, but who are enrolled in fall 2020. Students who experienced additional expenses in housing, food, technology, coursework, healthcare, or other areas due to the disruption of campus operations may apply. All eligible and potentially eligible students were notified via email regarding the opportunity and how to receive the funds, if eligible. The deadline to apply is November 16, 2020.

Students must visit here and log in to certify they have expenses to receive a grant. Grant amounts are determined using the same methodology as phase 1—degree level, enrollment status, and financial need. Pell-eligible full-time undergraduates may be awarded the largest individual grants.
