     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University received $5.29 million from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA Act) for student grants associated with increased costs of attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic.
     “We are hopeful that these funds will provide relief to students who have struggled financially over the last semester due to the pandemic,” said Southeastern President John L. Crain. “It is our hope to get these funds into the hands of students quickly to help reduce some of the financial stress they are experiencing.”
     Populations eligible to receive grants include degree seeking full and part time graduate and undergraduate students, as well as students enrolled in 100% online programs.
     Eligible students received an email from Southeastern the week of March 22 notifying them of the grant award with directions on how to access the funds. The deadline for students to accept the funds is the last regular class day of the spring semester, Friday, May 7, 2021.
     Southeastern has established a webpage to address questions about the emergency relief grants provided by the CRRSA Act. For more information, visit southeastern.edu/caresact or email finaid@southeastern.edu.
