Who is eligible for a HEERF Emergency Grant?
- Only available for US citizens and eligible non-citizens, who are otherwise eligible to receive Federal Student Aid (Title IV).
- To be considered, a student must be currently enrolled at least half time in a degree seeking program.
- If a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) has not been previously submitted, one will need to be completed prior to consideration.
- Must have expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus. If needed, the financial aid office will request documentation of these expenses. If documentation is requested and not provided promptly, the application will be disqualified from consideration.
How to Apply:
- With the application, you will be asked to list a dollar amount of the expense(s) incurred and a brief explanation of how the expense is directly related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus, in the following categories:
- Technology/Course Materials
- While we understand that lost wages for off-campus work have greatly impacted our student community, loss of employment cannot be considered as an expense. For assistance with lost wages, please file an unemployment claim in Colorado.
Please understand that the funding is very limited and that not all applications will receive HEERF Emergency Grant Assistance. Priority will be given to applicants who:
- Demonstrate the highest need according to the FAFSA
- Are enrolled in a normally residential degree program (highest impact with the transition to remote delivery and temporary campus closure)
- Do not have other forms of aid available up to the Cost of Attendance (including loans)
