Dear campus community,
Good Wednesday morning.
During the Winter Quarter, Louisiana Tech University established the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) Grant to provide financial assistance for expenses for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that are related to COVID-19, such as, but not limited to, tuition, food, housing, health care, mental health care, or child care.
We are continuing the CRRSAA Grant program for the Spring Quarter. Thanks to Aimee Baxter and our other Financial Aid professionals, our students received their grant funds during the winter quickly and efficiently. Faculty and Staff, please help us ensure that all students are aware of this information.
The funds that are awarded this spring will be posted on the student’s account and refunded in the form of a direct payment to the student by the end of the quarter. It is recommended that students set up direct deposit to their checking account so that funds will be readily accessible for needed expenses.
CRRSAA Grant Applications will be available on AcademicWorks on the following schedule:
- CRRSAA Spring Grant Application will be available March 26 (this Friday) through April 9. Disbursements for Spring Quarter will not begin until April 19, after all applications have been reviewed.
- CRRSAA Summer Grant Application will be available June 4-11. Disbursements of funds for Summer Quarter 12-week, first six-week, and first three-week sessions will not begin until June 21, after all applications have been reviewed. Disbursements for second six-week and second three-week sessions will not begin until July 14 if funding remains available.
Students who meet the basic criteria below will receive an email notification from the Office of Financial Aid with additional information on the CRRSAA Grant, and they will be able to see the application as a recommended opportunity in Academic Works when they log in.
Please review the full information, how to apply, and FAQs at latech.edu/CRRSAA. If you still have questions, you may contact CaresActGrant@latech.edu for additional information on the CRRSAA Grant Application. Students must submit their CRRSAA Grant Application by the published deadlines to be considered.
Students who meet these qualifications will see the CRSSAA Grant on AcademicWorks under recommended opportunities:
- A degree-seeking undergraduate/graduate student currently enrolled at Louisiana Tech University during the applicable quarter 2020-21;
- A U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen;
- Have completed a 2020-21 FAFSA;
- Have received a federal financial aid offer letter during 2020-21;
- Have a federal financial aid Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the 2020-21 FAFSA of less than $10,000.
- Submit an application which indicates the component(s) of the student’s cost of attendance (COA) or for emergency costs that are related to coronavirus, such as, but not limited to, tuition, food, housing, health care, mental health care, or child care while attending Louisiana Tech University.
Priority will be given to students who:
- Have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $0;
- Have official Pell Grant eligibility;
- Have exceptional “need” as defined by a federal financial aid offer letter which is considered to have a federal financial aid Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the 2020-21 FAFSA of less than $10,000
If you qualify for this new grant to help with the expenses associated with COVID-19, I encourage you to apply today.
