Federal ARP Student Emergency Assistance Grant Request

The fall application period has ended. Check back after winter break for the spring application.

As a result of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021, Montgomery College received funds through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III (HEERF III).

We are distributing these funds to students to help cover emergency costs related to the coronavirus pandemic. The money can be used for food, housing, health care, child care, tuition, or other school-related fees and expenses. 

In addition to federal (Title IV) financial aid eligible students, new guidance will now allow federal emergency assistance for Maryland Dreamers, DACA students, and other similar undocumented students. International students studying under F1 and on other visas are also now eligible to apply. Students enrolled in credit, noncredit and dual enrollment classes at MC are eligible for these funds.
