**Update – Due to limited remaining ARP funds and a large number of applications received the Phase 3 application has been closed. If future funding is made available updates will be made on our dedicated ARP website https://financialaid.uconn.edu/arp-emergency-funding-for-students/
Students who are experiencing an expense related to coronavirus (including eligible expenses under a student’s cost of attendance such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, tuition and childcare) may complete an emergency grant application at https://financialaid.uconn.edu/arp-emergency-spring-grant-application/. To qualify for an emergency grant the student will have to meet the following criteria:
- Enrolled and degree seeking for Spring 2022 term
If eligible, the value of the grant will be for $500.
The application for Phase 2 of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) emergency grant is live. Graduate students enrolled in a degree-seeking (e.g., master’s, doctoral) program for Fall 2021 are eligible to apply. If eligible, the value of the emergency grant will be $500 for this phase. The application for Fall 2021 is open until January 11, 2022. The emergency grant is available to cover any component of a student’s estimated cost of attendance (tuition, fees, books, and allowances for room, meals, transportation and personal expenses) or for emergency costs that have arisen due to the coronavirus. A student can submit the application, consisting of 5 basic questions, once during each phase.
