Priority consideration is given to students who demonstrate exceptional need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA). A FAFSA submission is not required for consideration but could affect the amount or availability of funding. We estimate that 30,039 students meet these requirements for consideration for the 2020-21 academic year.
Prior to May 11, 2021 guidance from the U.S. Department of Education suggests that students should hold U.S. citizenship or be Permanent Residents to be eligible for consideration for CURE2 Emergency Grants. According to the Department, under 8 USC 1611(a) of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, students who are not U.S. Citizens are not eligible to receive funding from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations
Students not eligible for support under the CURE2 Emergency Grant may apply for funding from the Pack Essentials Student Emergency Fund administered by DASA as long as funding remains available.
CURE2 Emergency Grant Funding has been fully expended and the application is no longer available. Should additional funding become available, the application will be reopened.
- Complete the CURE2 Emergency Grant application. The application is available in MyPack under the Financial Aid tile in the 2020-21 academic year.
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you have already completed the FAFSA, you do not need to complete it again. If you have not yet completed the FAFSA, we recommend you complete the 2021-22 version.
- Enroll in direct deposit. Enroll, update or check your direct deposit enrollment by visiting the Student Accounts tile in MyPack.
The CURE2 Emergency Grant application will be available until funds are expended. NC State understands the need to act quickly to address your needs.
