The application period is now open for HEERF III COVID-19 Emergency Grants.
Graduate and Professional students enrolled for Fall 2021 who are experiencing exceptional financial need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic are now able to apply for an emergency financial aid grant from the University’s Higher Education Emergency Relief (HEERF) III allocation.
The funds can be used to cover any component of a student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs due to COVID-19, including tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care), or child care, provided that the expense was incurred on or after the start of the national COVID-19 emergency on March 13, 2020, and the expenses were not already covered by other sources of funding.
Grants can be requested for up to $1,000 per student.
Students enrolled in an on-campus or online graduate program are eligible to apply regardless of nationality or citizenship status. Students cannot submit more than one HEERF III COVID-19 Emergency Grant application.
