CSU STUDENTS IN NEED - Emergency Grants Available

Message from the President (paraphrased):

All CSU campuses are distributing grants based on the greatest demonstrated financial need. The federal government is requiring that students must be eligible to receive federal financial aid to be considered. The simple application will be available Monday to those students who are eligible, and they will be directly notified.  They will have until May 11th to apply for priority consideration.  We plan to make these additional awards by May 21.

For more information on the CSU CARES emergency grant program, please visit the website: CSU Cares.

Students who are not eligible should apply for the HOPE Crisis fund.  More information about this fund can be found on the  University Development HOPE Crises fund site.
