CARES Act Funding for GS Students

Given the unprecedented and unexpected continuation of the pandemic and its effect on students and campus life, the School of General Studies is announcing the opportunity to apply for a one-time emergency grant paid directly to students.

January 08, 2021

This grant is made available in acknowledgment that many are experiencing challenges in finding work or other funding sources generally used to support items such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care. Priority will be given to students who receive financial aid. Funding will be from the CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds if students are eligible for U.S. federal financial aid programs. Those students who are not eligible for CARES funding may apply and other institutional sources will be considered. 

Eligible students are strongly encouraged to apply by January 15 via the GS Student Success Portal.
