On Friday, May 28 students received the following email:

We know many students continue to incur extraordinary or unplanned expenses due to the ongoing global pandemic. We write today to let you know emergency grant funding is available to assist with some of these expenses.

Thanks to Higher Education Emergency Relief (HEERF) funds the university received via grants from the Department of Education, emergency grant funding is available for all Lawrentians—regardless of citizenship status.

HEERF grants are prioritized for students with exceptional need. Emergency grant funding is intended to help with any component of your cost of attendance (such as tuition, housing, food, transportation, technology, health care, personal expenses or dependent care), as well as emergency costs that arose due to the pandemic. Although funding is not available for future expenses over the summer, a significant amount of HEERF grants will be available to students at the beginning of the 2021-22 academic year.

HEERF grants for this round of applications will be disbursed on June 16. Grant payment can be applied towards your student account or paid directly to you (by check or deposited in your bank account on file with Lawrence). To apply for funding, click here or visit go.lawrence.edu/covidgrants

The priority consideration date to complete the application is 4:59pm CT on Sunday, June 13, 2021

Stay well.
