$500 Grants Available to Summer Students

June 30, 2020

Students, who are enrolled in the summer term, may be eligible to receive a $500 federal grant and are encouraged to submit a form to check their eligibility with the Fullerton College Financial Aid Office. The deadline to submit a form is July 7.

Fullerton College received $4.85 million from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), made possible by the CARES Act. These funds must be awarded directly to currently enrolled students who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic and are eligible to receive federal financial aid. Students who submit the eligibility form and qualify, will receive a $500 grant.

Awards will continue until available funds are exhausted. Any remaining eligible students will be placed on a virtual waiting list in case more funding is available at a later date.

Undocumented students may receive emergency grants from other non-federal funds at the college. As long as funds are available, the grants will be the same amounts as the HEERF emergency grants.  The Grads to Be program at Fullerton College provides resources and a support network for undocumented students, students from mixed-status families, and allies. Visit grads2be.fullcoll.edu for more information.

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) interest form will be active through July 7.
