Students can apply by completing a brief form on the Bobcat Cares website between Feb. 15-28, and students will be prioritized for assistance by their demonstrated financial need, the release said.
Students who submit an online application will be notified with two weeks, but not all students who apply may receive funding.
Full-time and part-time students enrolled in the current spring semester are eligible for the grants, which may be used for any component of the cost of attendance, such as tuition, fees, housing, food, books, supplies and travel expenses to and from Texas State campuses.
Emergency health care, mental health care and child care costs related to the coronavirus are also eligible for coverage through the grant program.
International and undocumented students are not eligible for the federally funded portion of the emergency grants, but they can apply for an institutionally funded grant through the TSU Dean of Students Office, according to the Bobcat Cares website.
The university is also planning to award grants to students enrolled in the summer and fall semesters of this year. Application for summer and fall semesters are not being accepted at this time, but an announcement will be made by the university when they begin accepting them.
More information about the program and eligibility is available online.
