Update December 1, 2021 – Spring 2022 CARES Grant Application

In an effort to support students who have continued their educational journey during the pandemic, MGCCC has offered nearly $16 million in financial assistance directly to students in the form of “CARES” grants.

With additional funding provided through the American Rescue Plan (ARP), the College will continue to provide another $5 million in “CARES” grants during the upcoming Spring 2022 semester. These funds will be distributed to students in the form of $550-$825 grants. Priority will be given to students with exceptional need based on Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The application for the 2022 Spring “CARES” Grant opens Monday, December 6, 2021. The College will begin distributing grants in mid-February and continue throughout the semester until all funds have been disbursed.

To be eligible to receive a 2022 Spring CARES Grant, a student must be enrolled in Spring 2022 courses and must have experienced a hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Students receiving a grant will be notified via their MGCCC email. Students will have the option of applying the grants directly to a student account to help pay for charges for the Spring 2022 semester.
