Student Emergency Cash Grants

American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act Funding

Fall 2021

Lindsey Wilson College is distributing student emergency financial aid grants this summer from the ARP Act to enrolled students demonstrating the greatest financial need.

Eligible students include undergraduate and graduate degree-seeking students who are enrolled in the fall 2021 semester. This includes students on main and extended campuses and students enrolled in online programs. Students also need to have applied for federal student aid by submitting a 2021-22 FAFSA and have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) not more than $20,000.

The federal government directed that priority be given to the students with the highest financial need. Therefore, the College based the emergency cash grants on EFC. The lower the EFC, the greater the need.

EFC Amounts Emergency Cash Grant
$0 $1,300
$1 - $5,846 $900
$5,847 - $11,000 $700
$11,001 - $20,000 $600

Eligible students received an email directing them to a website where they can make a choice about applying the grant to their student account balance or receiving the disbursement in cash. Students must make a selection to receive the grant which signifies they have a financial need.
