Student Support Fund | COVID-19

Thank you for your interest in Broward College's SOS Student Emergency Support Fund. We received an overwhelming amount of interest and are currently not accepting more applications for this award.

Please understand that the Federal CARE Acts grant is different from the previously allocated SOS Student Emergency Support Funds.

While we have allocated all the SOS Student Emergency Funds the college put aside to support our students, the Federal CARES Act funds have been made available.

The grant is currently available to Broward College students who were enrolled in Summer 2020 and/or Fall 2020 and meet the following criteria:

  1. Must have a 2019-2020 (Summer) and/or 2020-2021 (Fall) Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with Broward College. You cannot be awarded these funds if you don't have a FAFSA on file.
  2. Must be/have been enrolled in a Title IV eligible degree program at Broward College in the term in which the student is applying for aid.
  3. Must be/have been meeting SAP guidelines for the term in which the student is applying for aid, either passing or by appeal.
  4. Must not have Pell grant overpayments or have a federal loan in default.
  5. Must have completed a statement of educational purpose and verify identity (SSN).
  6. Must not be a dual enrollment or early admission high school student.
  7. Must have additional expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.
  8. If you were previously awarded in the Summer term, you are not eligible for a second Summer award. However, you can apply for a Fall award, if you are enrolled for the Fall term.

If you meet these criteria, please complete the application link below by October 27, 2020. Your application will be assessed, and your eligibility for award determined. Awards will vary from a minimum of $150 to a maximum of $850 and will be determined based on need.

We know that many of our students have faced challenges during this pandemic, and Broward College stands ready to continue to support you in your academic goals. We are here for you and look forward to welcoming you this fall.
