Awards will be made to Active students who are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens only at a set amount per program (see below).

Priority will be given to those students with an exceptional need and/or an unmet need.  It is understood these funds may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or childcare.

It is also understood that these funds are not Title IV funds and SAP (student academic progress) does not apply. We as an institution are merely stewards of these funds for our students. 

Students will need to complete the FAFSA along with the HEERF II application/attestation and submit for review.  Once an application has been reviewed and approved a check will be issued to the student.  The student has the option of applying any or all their grant funds towards their cost of tuition or housing- but may not be required to do so.

The school will keep a spreadsheet to track student disbursements and a running remaining balance of funds available.  If there are funds remaining after initial disbursements, the remaining funds will be disbursed to future active students and will continue until all funds have been disbursed.

49.0199 Airline Travel Specialist = $1,000

12.0503 Culinary Arts = $2,500

*Disbursement policy and amounts have been reviewed and approved by Campus President- considering cost and length of each program offered and with the understanding the Institution is to distribute Grant Awards to as many of our Active students as possible as soon as possible.
