Madison College COVID-19 Impact Grant 

If your finances were impacted by COVID-19, you can receive emergency assistance through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) II from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSSA). Use funding for any school expense—even beyond tuition. Or pay an emergency-related expense caused by COVID-19.

What expenses are covered? 

  • Tuition
  • Living expenses
  • Emergencies caused by COVID-19

Who is eligible for these emergency funds?

We’re required to prioritize students with exceptional need. Student Financial Support Services considers Pell Grant eligibility, FAFSA completion and self-certification for awarding and disbursement processes. 

You will receive a COVID Impact Grant automatically if you’ve completed the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).  Non-FAFSA students must self-certify citizenship and documentation of an emergency situation due to the coronavirus.

How much funding can I receive each term?

The COVID Impact Grant is available once each term to until the beginning of Spring 2022 (or until funding is depleted).  

(If you completed the FAFSA, your Expected Family Contribution will tell you if you’re a Pell student or not.) 

Pell Students

  • Spring term $750

Non-Pell or Non-FAFSA

  • Spring term $500

You’re eligible if:

You’re enrolled in one or more Madison College credits
