COVID-19: CARES Act Aid Application
Dear Covenant Students,
Due to COVID-19, Covenant College has received additional financial resources from the federal government via the CARES Act. These funds are to be disbursed to students that have been impacted financially due to the pandemic. These funds have been allocated by the federal government to colleges across the country to be used for students who are eligible for funds from the government in a normal academic year. This means that students will only be eligible to receive funds if he or she is eligible to complete a FAFSA*, however, the completion of a FAFSA is not required.
We ask that students complete the short application in the link at the bottom of this email in order to be considered for this aid. This application is due on Tuesday, May 12th at 11:59 p.m. We will begin responding to requests on Friday, May 15th. Please select any categories that apply to your personal financial impact from COVID-19, then list an explanation of your selections in the provided box.
*The criteria to participate in programs under Section 484 of the Higher Education Act include but are not limited to the following: U.S. citizenship or eligible noncitizen; a valid Social Security number; registration with Selective Service (if the student is male); and a high school diploma, GED, or completion of high school in an approved homeschool setting.
