Students who took out loans or expressed a need for loans were also considered for this grant in an effort to provide funds to help prevent the need for a loan or to help the student with payments on the loan.

Disbursements were made and students received a check for the full amount for which they were eligible unless we received a signed Authorization Form giving us permission to keep the funds and apply them to their student account.
