Texas State offers financial help

Texas State University has announced more than $6.5 million in federally funded emergency assistance will be available to students for the spring 2022 semester through Bobcat Cares to help enrolled and eligible students lessen financial insecurity caused by the pandemic.

The application period for the spring 2022 Bobcat Cares Emergency Grant is open until Feb. 1.

The $6.5 million in student assistance will be distributed directly to eligible students through the federal Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. The emergency grants will help Texas State students deal with the financial burden caused by the pandemic and assist with the costs of attending college.

Currently enrolled full- and part-time students are eligible to receive emergency funds to offset expenses related to any component of the cost of attendance, including tuition, fees, housing, food, books, supplies and travel expenses to and from Texas State campuses. The funds can also cover emergency costs due to the coronavirus, including health care, mental health care and child care.

Students can learn more about the emergency grant, eligibility requirements and how to apply at txstate.edu/cares.html.
