TSU Cares GEER Emergency Grant Application 

The grants are intended to assist currently enrolled undergraduate students with financial need in continuing an uninterrupted path toward a higher education. To accomplish this objective, the funds will be awarded to students whose families have been affected financially by the coronavirus pandemic and who are now facing unexpected financial hardships in paying for their educational expenses. The number of recipients will depend on the number of applicants, their financial need (as demonstrated by the FAFSA), and the availability of funds. This grant is for the FALL SEMESTER ONLY.
