Federal CRRSA Act

CRRSAA Student Financial Aid Grant Application Notification

Embry-Riddle has received federal funding from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA). These funds will provide financial aid grants to students which may be used for: 1) any component of the student’s cost of attendance; or 2) emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus. Emergency costs may include, but are not limited to, emergency travel, unreimbursed health care expenses (including mental health care), storage/shipping costs, technology needs, child care and personal protective equipment.

In adherence with the Department of Education’s guidance, the university will prioritize students with the greatest financial need. Not every eligible student may receive funding, and selected students may receive only a portion of their eligible expenses. Grants will be awarded to students for the duration that resources are available.

The university’s Financial Aid offices have begun to reach out to students with significant need as determined by their FAFSA. While the FAFSA is not required to receive a grant, you are encouraged to complete a FAFSA if you are in need of financial assistance for your education at Embry-Riddle.

In order to qualify for the grant, students must be enrolled in at least one credit hour for the spring 2021 semester (Daytona Beach and Prescott campuses) or the January or February terms (Worldwide campus) at the time of disbursement. The university is unable to issue CRRSAA funds to international, DACA and undocumented students per federal guidelines. 

You may access the application here and choose to either apply the grant to your outstanding student account balance or receive a direct refund. If applicable, a student may apply for both. If you select the option to apply the grant toward your outstanding account balance, any excess funds, once the balance is paid in full, will be refunded to you. Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. 

If you have not signed up for direct deposit, we encourage you to do so at: https://ernie.erau.edu/Departments/bursar-daytona/Pages/Making-Payments.aspx.
