Quinnipiac has $2,672,600 in HEERF Student Share Grant Funds to award directly to students – and approximately $1.2 million of the funds have been awarded to students to date. If there is money remaining after July 30, eligible applicants will continue to be awarded.
To be eligible, students:
The number of students who will receive awards depends on how many apply and the amount of their awards – which are based on a combination of their expenses and their Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) from the FAFSA. Emergency grants for eligible students range, on average, from about $600 to $1,000 – though some may be more or less depending on the needs of those who have applied. Typically, students are notified of their award decision within three weeks of application submission. Awarded students will receive funds as a refund from their student account.
Students should file a FAFSA before applying. This may still be completed for 2020/2021 at studentaid.gov. Though a FAFSA is required to confirm eligibility, students do not have to have received financial aid to qualify for this award.
