Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF)
Fullerton College received $4.85 million from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), made possible by the CARES Act. These funds must be awarded directly to currently enrolled students who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic and are eligible to receive federal financial aid. Students who submitted the eligibility form and qualify, will receive a $500 grant.
For fall, students were offered an awarded if they completed their financial aid file. Students received an email informing them to accept their award if they had incurred at least $500 in COVID related expenses, before the grant would disburse.
