Federal Aid Opportunities for Students in Need

Through the Federal CARES Act, Fontbonne has received emergency grant funding to assist students who have incurred expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students are eligible for CARES Act funds if they have filed a 2019-20 or 20-21 FAFSA and have incurred expenses related to the disruption of campus operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Federal guidelines prohibit the university from distributing CARES Act funds to international, undocumented or DACA students, or those who were already enrolled exclusively in online instruction. Please contact the Financial Aid Office (finaid@fontbonne.edu) if you have questions about your eligibility or need assistance filing a FAFSA.

Students who do not meet the eligibility criteria for CARES Act funds and are in need of financial assistance are still encouraged to fill out the request form because there may be alternative funding sources available.

Students who either did not incur additional expenses or do not need financial assistance should indicate they decline CARES Act assistance so the University can reallocate those funds to assist other students in need.
