We care about you and we are committed to trying to find ways to assist you during this unprecedented time. You could be eligible for a one-time $500 grant in assistance through the SPC CARES Act. If you filed a 2019-20 FAFSA, meet federal financial aid eligibility requirements AND you have a job loss, loss of income, temporary furlough, or medical expenses as a result of COVID-19, you can apply.
