Oklahoma Panhandle State University to Issue Additional CARES Student Aid Grants

Panhandle State Communications on 03/26/2021

Oklahoma Panhandle State University understands that the disruption to daily life caused by COVID-19 includes financial hardships for many in the Aggie Family.

The U.S. Department of Education announced additional funding allocated to the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA), which was signed into law on Dec. 27, 2020. OPSU is also able to provide additional financial assistance with this funding to our students who have been economically impacted by this global pandemic through the federally funded CARES Act.

Student eligibility for financial assistance through the Panhandle State CARES Student Aid Grant is determined by the U.S. Department of Education. Students enrolled in the Fall and/or Spring 2021 semesters are eligible to apply for the funds. At this time, international and non-citizens students are not eligible for the funds.

Students receiving the first CARES student aid grant will be required to complete a new application. To apply, please complete the short application form at my.opsu.edu to be considered for your Panhandle State CARES Student Aid Grant. Students will need their student ID number to apply.

OPSU also has academic, activity, and athletic scholarships available. For information on how to apply, go to scholarships.opsu.edu

OPSU looks forward to opening campus with a safe return this Fall with face-to-face instruction, hybrid instruction, and online instruction to meet all of the various student needs.
