GEU Solidarity Grant

CARES Act Funding: Students may also apply for assistance from MSU’s $14.9 million in CARES Act funds (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act) through the Office of Financial Aid. The funds will be distributed to eligible students to address the financial problems created for them by necessary changes at MSU as it responded to the novel coronavirus. The University is developing an online application to make it easier for students who need assistance to receive it. The online application will be posted on the MSU Responds website once available.
