Financial Resources

The Office of Scholarship and Student Aid is currently awarding emergency grants to students from multiple funds. These awards are intended to help you cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus, and covered items such as food, emergency housing, transportation, technology, and health care. 

CARES Act Funding

The Office of Scholarship and Student Aid is awarding emergency grants to students from the student portion of CARES Act funding from the U.S. Department of Education.

Student Impact Fund

Other Financial Resources

Internet Supplements

Through the collaborative efforts of the Commission on Campus Equality & Student Equity, Student Government, Information Technology Services, the Office of the Dean of Students, and Office of Scholarships and Student Aid, a $200 internet supplement is now available if you are currently receiving need-based financial aid. This supplement is available until funds are depleted.

Recognizing the challenges you may face in affording or accessing reliable and stable internet access, this new supplement is intended to provide financial assistance with internet costs associated with the Fall 2020 semester.

Visit the Office of Scholarship and Student Aid’s COVID-19 Financial Assistance webpage and scroll to the Fall 2020 Internet Supplement row at the bottom of the Eligibility Information chart to learn more about the supplement and apply if you have not already received this funding.

New Allowance for Relocation

The Office of Scholarships and Student Aid plans to include a new $400 allowance in the cost of attendance (“student budget”), for relocation expenses to assist those students who move to their permanent address. While the funds last, students who newly qualify for the internet supplement of $200 (because they moved off campus), will receive that as well.

Additional Support

As always, emergency funds will be available for students with extraordinary hardships through the Impact Fund and the Office of the Dean of Students Emergency Fund.
