Students eligible for HEERFIII funds included all students matriculated in the Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 terms. International and undocumented students are now eligible to apply for HEERFIII funds.
The ARP required institutions to prioritize HEERFIII student aid grants to students with “exceptional need.” Award prioritization was based on the premise of “exceptional need” and Antioch University used Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as a proxy for need.
Emergency grants were limited in number and amount due to funding constraints.
HOW TO APPLY
To apply for HEERFIII grant funds students logged into AUDIRECT:
HEERFIII student aid funds may be used by students for any component of their 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.
DETERMINATION OF AWARDS
Students will complete an online application within a 14-day application period and identify impact statements that apply. EFC will be used as a proxy for exceptional need. Students will be required to attest to the need for funding as well as affirm they are being truthful in their submission. Award amounts will be based on the total number of eligible applications, amount of funding availability and priority group.
