CARES Act Emergency Grants
As a result of the federal government-established CARES Act, North Park University has received funding to provide emergency grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, child care, and health care. Only Title IV-eligible students, as indicated by the Higher Education Act of 1965, may receive these emergency grants, according to federal guidelines. These funds will be given as direct payments to students as explained below.
After careful consideration of how to disburse these funds, it was determined that degree-seeking traditional undergraduates and undergraduates in the School of Professional Studies who are Pell- and/or MAP-eligible would be given emergency grants. Full-time students will be receiving $1100. Part-time students will be receiving $500.
A portion of the grant funding has also been set aside to allow other eligible undergraduate students, as well as graduate and adult students, to apply for a $500 emergency grant.
