Campus Update – ARP grants
October 12th, 2021
Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Tuesday morning.
Yesterday, our Office of Financial Aid opened the application process for grants through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP). Like CARES and CRRSAA grants, the ARP provides 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.
The application will be open on AcademicWorks (latech.academicworks.com) through the end of the day Oct. 30. There will be additional application periods for the winter and spring quarters.
Students who meet the following qualifications will see the ARP Grant on AcademicWorks:
- Be a degree-seeking undergraduate/graduate student currently enrolled at Louisiana Tech University during the applicable quarter of 2021-22 academic year
- Be a U.S. Citizen or Eligible Non-Citizen who has completed a 2021-2022 FAFSA and has received a federal financial aid offer letter or be an International student who has completed the International Student Financial Aid Application (College Board)
- Have a federal financial aid Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of less than $15,000 as determined by the 2021-2022 FAFSA or the International Student Financial Aid application
- Have original “need” greater than $0 as defined by subtracting the student Cost of Attendance from the EFC
- Submit an application which indicates the components of the student’s cost of attendance 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
Students who meet the basic criteria will receive an email notification from the Office of Financial Aid with additional information on the ARP Grant and they will be able to see the application as a recommended opportunity in AcademicWorks when they log in.
The funds that are awarded 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. Students should set up direct deposit to their checking account so that funds will be readily accessible for needed expenses.
Please review the full information, how to apply, and FAQs at latech.edu/coronavirus/ARP. If you still have questions, you may contact CaresActGrant@latech.edu for additional information on the ARP Grant Application.
Students must submit their ARP Grant Application by the published deadline to be considered.
When awarding the grants, the Office of Financial Aid will prioritize students who have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $0, have official Pell Grant eligibility, and 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 2021-22 FAFSA of less than $15,000.
Kinesiology Health & Wellness Tip of the Day
Thanks to our Kinesiology faculty for offering this Tip of the Day!
Physical wellness encompasses a variety of healthy behaviors including exercise, proper nutrition and abstaining from harmful habits such as drug and alcohol abuse. It means learning about and identifying symptoms of disease, getting regular medical checkups, and protecting yourself from injuries and harm. Developing such healthy habits today will not only add years to your life but will enhance the enjoyment and quality of those years.
