New funding has been launched that will give one-time $500 hardship grants to students.

The California College Student Emergency Support Fund will help address emergency needs for the state�s low-income college students, including undocumented immigrants, foster youth, and those who are housing insecure. These quick-turnaround grants are intended to cover financial expenses such as housing, technology, and more to support educational continuity, persistence, and degree completion for college students through this crisis.

To be eligible for the California College Student Emergency Support Fund, students must: 

  • Be currently enrolled full-time (12+ units) as an undergraduate at a California Community College, California State University, or University of California campus 
  • Have earned at least 24 semester units or 36 quarter units (i.e., one academic year of coursework) 
  • Be low-income, with a maximum Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of $5,576 (equivalent to eligibility for Pell Grant) or eligible for a California College Promise Grant Fee Waiver (formerly known as the BOG fee waiver) 

It�s important for interested students to apply as soon as possible as these grants will go fast.

Students can apply for grants online atbit.ly/covid-student-grant
