Emergency Grants


Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund Instructions

As a result of the Federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act, there are additional funds coming to Grossmont College, which will allow us to award additional emergency grants to students.

However, there are some unique requirements that the federal government has for institutions to award federal CARES Emergency Grant funds to students:

  • The U.S. Department of Education has determined that students must be eligible, or potentially eligible, for Title IV Financial Aid to be considered for CARES Act Emergency Grants. This means that students must have filed, and be eligible to file, a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Students can only be awarded based on increased education-related costs -- not based upon financial need, creating an additional step for students who have already completed the Grossmont SEA application. If you have already submitted a SEA Emergency Grant Application, please complete the additional survey information required for federal CARES Act Emergency Grants at the following link:

Form steps to complete:

  1. Step 1: Enter your First name as it appears on your FAFSA.
  2. Step 2: Enter your Last name as it appears on your FAFSA.
  3. Step 3: Enter your Grossmont College Student ID number.
  4. Step 4: Complete the self-certification and check the appropriate boxes that pertain to your additional expenses due to COVID-19.
  5. Step 5: Submit your application.
