How To Apply:

Students must complete the emergency aid application provided HERE or upon request. Funds will be granted for student expenses that are related to TLU’s campus closure due to COVID-19. These can include expenses such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and childcare. Note: We can award grants for expenses but not lost pay.

Guidance provided by the U.S. Department of Education states that TLU may not use the emergency financial aid grants to satisfy a student’s outstanding account balance. The Department of Education notes that the student may use his or her emergency financial aid grant for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.
