Walla Walla University has received over $718,000 in a federal CARES Grant to award to students who have been affected financially by the coronavirus pandemic. The first round of awarding to our highest need-based students has been completed. The applications are now open to the next group of need-based students who may be eligible for a federal CARES Grant.
To be considered for this funding students must explain how they have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and outline how they will use the funds. Funds can be used for food, housing, class materials, technology, health care, or child-care expenses. Payment of a school bill is not considered an allowed expense.
Only students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents (green card holders) and have filed a FAFSA will be considered for the CARES Grant. Students who are not eligible to complete a FAFSA will be considered for a limited amount of emergency funds donated to WWU. If you previously applied and were denied, your application will be reviewed.
Please apply if you have eligible financial needs. Funds are awarded to eligible students in the order applications are received. Priority is given to students with the most need. Distribution of grants will end when the funds are depleted.
