What is the CARES HBCU grant and how do I apply?

Hey everyone, I’ve heard about the CARES HBCU grant but I'm not entirely clear on what it is. Could someone explain what the grant covers and how a high school senior planning to go to an HBCU can apply? Any deadlines I should be aware of?

The CARES HBCU grant refers to funding provided to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) as part of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) under the CARES Act. Its purpose is to support institutions and their students during disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding can be used for various institutional costs and for emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the pandemic.

As a high school senior, you would not apply for the CARES HBCU grant directly. Instead, once you are enrolled in an HBCU, you may become eligible to receive emergency financial aid grants from your institution, which could be funded by this grant. Each HBCU has its own process for determining how these funds are distributed to students. It's best to check with the financial aid office of the HBCU you plan to attend for details on the application process and any deadlines that may apply. They will provide the most accurate and current information regarding the availability and distribution of these grants.
