Goshen College students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses because of temporary hardships related to the COVID-19 crisis may be considered for limited, short-term, financial assistance through the COVID-19 Student Relief Fund.
The Goshen College COVID-19 Student Relief Fund is funded by the Federal Government’s Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act and through gifts from our generous alumni and donors.
Examples of Qualifying Expenses:
- Food expenses
- Course materials
- Technology upgrades
- Child care
Eligibility Requirements and Considerations
- Applicants must have been enrolled at Goshen College on March 16, 2020.
- This funding is only for students experiencing temporary financial hardship resulting from disruptions from COVID-19 and its implications.
- Students eligible for federal funding
- Students must be U.S. citizens and have a valid Social Security number.
- If you already filed a 2019-20 or 2020-21 FAFSA and received federal aid, you may be eligible for CARES Act funds.
- If you have not filed a FAFSA, please apply at studentaid.gov/FAFSA in order to be considered. Even if your family chose to not file a FAFSA because of your income, you can still file a FAFSA now to be considered for the CARES Act funding.
