HEERF III COVID-19 Emergency Financial Aid Grants
Graduate and professional students enrolled for Spring 2022 may submit a request for an emergency grant of up to $1,000 to help with financial challenges associated with COVID-19. Students enrolled in an on-campus or online program are eligible to apply regardless of nationality or citizenship status.
The application period will begin Tuesday, January 18, and close Monday, January 31, at 5 p.m. (CT).
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.
These grants are funded by the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) III, which is part of the federal American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
More information about this grant is available online.
