Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund
Maysville Community and Technical College is offering students up to $1,500 via its stimulus funds.
School officials announced today that it will distribute about $2.5 million to eligible students who are enrolled in courses the fall 2021 semester. The money comes from the federal Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, part of the American Rescue Plan passed in March.
Eligible students must:
- Be seeking a certificate, diploma, or degree.
- Have completed the 2021-2022 FAFSA.
- Be enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours.
Grant awards will range from $1,000 to as much as $1,500 for qualifying students. The money can be used for education-related expenses or emergency costs related to COVID, including tuition, food, housing, healthcare, or childcare.
“Students have unprecedented access to funds available through the federal relief fund to support their education,” said MCTC Interim President Russ Ward. “This doesn’t happen very often and I hope students take advantage of this very unique opportunity. Now is the time to get started – or return – to MCTC.
Fall classes at MCTC begin August 16.
