Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) II Grant Funding Available

The University of Maryland is encouraging eligible students facing financial distress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to apply for assistance through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II). Students who wish to apply must fill out the UMD Student COVID Relief Grant application and provide a statement about how the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in financial hardship.  

To complete the application, log in to the financial aid portal. Eligible students may use the funds for expenses such as food, housing, tuition, course materials, technology, health care, and child care. Detailed eligibility requirements can be found on the Financial Aid Office website.

Eligible students who already received the UMD Student COVID Relief Grant based on their 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and who are still experiencing financial distress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic may also submit the application for additional emergency COVID relief grant consideration.  

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid at umdfinaid@umd.edu or call 301.314.TERP.
