YSU Penguins CARE Emergency Grant


YSU has received funding from the CARES Act. "The CARES Act was established and funds the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) to provide emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus."

The Penguins CARE Emergency Grant application was created by the University to prioritize the release of grant funds to Pell grant recipients who were not enrolled in online degree programs when the COVID-19 pandemic emerged causing disruption to on-campus learning and creating financial challenges.

Please log in below to continue. The log in process will validate that you have met all conditions to request financial support from the Penguins CARE Emergency Grant. Those conditions include Pell grant eligibility during the Spring 2020 semester and enrollment in an on-campus degree program.


The application deadline has expired, the application has been removed.
