GVSU Financial Hardship Grant Request

GVSU remains committed to supporting you during the COVID-19 pandemic. From the generosity of the GVSU community and its partners, we have been able to provide institutional grants to those who have faced economic hardship. Recently, Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act which provides federal grant funds to federal aid-eligible students who have encountered additional expenses as a result of campus disruptions due to COVID-19.

Complete this form to submit your request for assistance. The information you provide will be used to evaluate your eligibility for a federal grant from the CARES Act, or an institutional grant. For this reason, complete this form to the best of your ability.

Please monitor your GVSU email address in case we have any follow-up questions.
