Grant Programs Information

You must reapply for your financial aid package each academic year.

Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) Grants

Student emergency grants are available for Fall Term 2021 to assist with educational expenses as part of the federal government's Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) due to the COVID pandemic. Students do not have to apply and no FAFSA is required. The grants will be awarded to every non-Dual Enrolled student taking at least one for-credit or clock-hour course, with the amount prorated based on the student's schedule. The emergency grants are in addition to any other financial aid and will not have to be repaid. The grants are not applied to any balance due on a student's account and will be disbursed to the student as a refund using BankMobile, EFSC’s refund processor. Full term HEERF refunds will be disbursed in September. The same HEERF grant process will apply to shorter Fall Terms.
