Priority consideration is given to students who demonstrate exceptional needs 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.
Current guidance from the U.S. Department of Education suggests that students need not hold U.S. citizenship to be eligible for consideration for Rescue Emergency Grants. According to the Department, students who are not U.S. citizens are eligible to be considered for funding under
the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
Students whose applications for support under the Rescue Emergency Grant are not approved may apply for funding from the Pack Essentials Student Emergency Fund administered by DASA as long as funding remains available.
- Complete the Rescue Emergency Grant Application. The application is available in MyPack under the Financial Aid tile in the 2021-22 academic year.
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2021-22 academic year. If you have already completed the FAFSA, you do not need to complete it again. Students
who are not US citizens are not eligible to complete the FAFSA. Your application for Rescue Emergency Grant funding is still valid without the FAFSA. Your eligibility will be determined based on the information submitted in the Rescue Emergency Grant application.
- Enroll in direct deposit. Enroll, update or check your direct deposit enrollment by visiting the Student Accounts tile in MyPack.
The Rescue Emergency Grant application will be available until funds are expended. NC State understands the need to act quickly to address your needs.
