Students Eligible For Second Round Of Penn State COVID-19 Relief Funding

Penn State students in need of financial aid can now apply for the second round of emergency funding through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA).

The CRRSAA, which was signed into law in December 2020, has already provided funding for Penn State students this past April by granting nearly $25.6 million dollars to 23,000 students.

Students were selected for funding based on data from the 2020-21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). However, this time around, Penn State will disperse the remaining funds through an application to support students who were not initially identified for a grant in the first round of funding.

Those who did not already receive funding from the CRRSAA will receive application priority. You can apply for an application through the Office of Student Aid here.

Students across all Commonwealth Campuses and Penn State’s World Campus are eligible for an application if they were enrolled with the University during the Spring 2021 semester. Grants from the CRRSAA will be worth up to $1,000 and won’t need to be repaid.

Dispersed funding can be used for a number of expenses, including those related to COVID-19, tuition, student life, and health care. Applications are considered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
