Emergency Grant Application Instructions

 

APPLY FOR EMERGENCY AID

 

As a result of the Federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act, there are additional funds coming to Grossmont College, which will allow us to award additional Emergency Grants to students.

 

While the U.S. Department of Education has determined that students must be eligible, or potentially eligible, for Title IV Financial Aid to be considered for CARES Act Emergency Grants, a federal court put a legal injunction on this guidance as of June 17, 2020. This means that Grossmont College will consider all potentially eligible students for CARES Act Emergency Grants, including undocumented and international students.

  • Students can only be awarded based on increased education-related costs -- not based upon financial need. Please apply at the following link: https://forms.gle/rhizjGz86CDXx2Cs5

Form steps to complete:

  1. Enter your First name as it appears on your FAFSA or CA Dream Act application. If you are an International student, enter your First name as it appears on your Grossmont College Admissions application.
  2. Enter your Last name as it appears on your FAFSA or CA Dream Act application.  If you are an International student, enter your Last name as it appears on your Grossmont College Admissions application.
  3. Enter your Grossmont College Student ID number.
  4. Complete the self-certification and check the appropriate boxes that pertain to your additional expenses due to COVID-19.
  5. Submit your application.

You will be notified via email if you were approved, if additional information is needed or if your application is denied. All funds will be disbursed through BankMobile.
