COVID-19 Relief Money Coming for Spring 2021 Students
January 12, 2021
Students enrolled in the Spring 2021 semester will receive money from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) to help provide relief for COVID-19-related costs. While the details and timeline for the release of the funds is still being determined, eligible students can expect to see funds released in a similar manner as last spring.
In Spring 2020, eligible University of Idaho students each received $513. To expedite receiving the funds, you are encouraged to have a FAFSA on file and to set up direct deposit to your bank account. Checks will be sent to students who do not have a bank account set up, but they will be slower than direct deposit. You will be notified by email of your eligibility as soon as further details are finalized. You will be asked to confirm that your direct deposit information is correct but will not be required to apply or take any other steps.
Further information will be posted to the U of I COVID-19 webpage after the process is finalized.
