Dear campus community,
Good Thursday morning.
Today, Louisiana Tech will open the application period for the latest round of CARES Act grants. You’ll remember, the initial CARES Act grants were delivered to students in April, and we also awarded grants during the Summer 2020 Quarter.
The CARES Act is federal legislation which provides financial support to individuals and businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. One part of this federal program allocates money to Louisiana Tech University, and a portion of that allocation has been awarded directly to students who are experiencing financial expenses due to the coronavirus.
Students can apply for the current round of grants on AcademicWorks, and the application will only appear for students who meet the requirements for this round of grants. In order to qualify for the CARES Act Grant Application, students must:
- Be eligible or could be eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965
- Have incurred expenditures due to the COVID-19 related circumstances that have affected their cost of attendance related to the disruption of campus operations while attending Louisiana Tech
- Submit an application which indicates their individual expense categories incurred related to COVID-19
- Be a degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student currently enrolled at Tech during the Fall 2020 Quarter
- Must not have been enrolled in an exclusively online degree program prior to the COVID-19 pandemic during the Fall 2020 Quarter
- Have completed a 2020-21 FAFSA
- Have completed all documents required to be considered for federal financial aid
- Have received a federal financial aid offer letter
- Have a federal financial aid Expected Family Contribution as determined by the 2020-21 FAFSA of less than $10,000.
Students who do not meet the qualifications will be unable to see or apply for the CARES Act Grant on AcademicWorks.
This application period will end Sept. 30, so get started on your application today. For more information on the CARES Act at Tech, visit latech.edu/CARES-Act.
If you haven’t already, plan to register to take your COVID-19 screening soon. We will have testing available through Oct. 2 at the Argent Pavilion – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each weekday.
Have a great day today, and I hope you keep up the good work wearing your masks and keeping appropriate physical distance.
