    Students who are experiencing financial hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic should submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2020-21 academic year, and select EVC as the school of attendance. At the start of the Summer and Fall terms, the CARES Emergency Grant Application will be available to enrolled students continuing from the Spring 20 semester to apply for emergency funding. To ensure students receive the maximum amount of federal and state aid available to them, students must complete their financial aid files to be considered for CARES funding.  Dreamers and International students are not eligible for CARES Emergency Grants.
