Mars Hill University is providing grants to help eligible students pay their fall 2021 semester billing charges.
The grants are part of the third round of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, a part of the American Rescue Plan which was signed into law in March, to help institutions of higher education serve students and ensure learning continues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The grants are available to full-time traditional undergraduate, adult undergraduate, and graduate students. All students who meet the eligibility criteria will receive at least $750 toward their fall semester account.
To qualify for the grant, students need to:
- Be enrolled full-time as of September 6, 2021, the last day to add or drop a class.
- Have a completed 2021-2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file.
- Fill out the emergency relief request form.
Previously, Mars Hill distributed $853,880 in Emergency Relief Funding to 446 eligible students. Students were able to apply the funds to outstanding tuition balances or other needs.
