Students must complete and submit the online application at the top of this page for consideration of their grant request. Upon receipt of the application, eligibility to receive federal financial aid will be verified, and a committee appointed by the president will determine the grant award amount in compliance with the HEERF and available funds.
Students are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible, and the distribution of grants will begin immediately. Since the amount of money that La Roche has been given to distribute to our students in the form of emergency aid is limited, we anticipate the number of requests will exceed the amount of money we have to award. In order to serve as many students as possible, grants will range from $250 to $1,400. The committee will consider the following criteria for each applicant when awarding grants:
- Eligible students who did not receive an emergency financial aid grant in the first round will receive highest priority;
- Pell eligible students with no Expected Family Contribution;
- Students with a significant need related to COVID-19 disruptions, including food, housing and health care; and
- Other students eligible to receive federal assistance also will be considered for emergency grants.
