Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) The U.S. Congress allocated funding to colleges and universities to assist students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) was created to enable colleges and universities to provide cash grants to current students for expenses related to disruptions to their education due to COVID-19.
Funds under HEERF can be used for the following:
Eligibility Criteria (as determined by Congress and Federal Student Aid):
For those students who met the above criteria, a separate message was sent regarding the process in receiving funds.
For those students who did not meet the criteria or for those that may have additional needs beyond the funding provided, The University has some additional funding that is being held for students to complete a one-time appeal, either via the HEERF or Bison Aid Fund. Please note that if you have already received money from the COVID-19 Bison Aid Fund, you may not be eligible for an additional appeal.
