CARES ACT Funding Now Available

CARES Act funds are now available to students who qualify.

The federal government passed a law called the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The CARES Act provides financial assistance to students for expenses related to the disruption of their studies due to COVID-19. 

Miramar Colleges is using a portion of CARES Act funds to provide student relief grants directly to students.  These funds are meant to help students pay expenses for technology, health care, childcare, course materials, rent, food, moving or other expenses incurred this semester.

In order to ensure we provide financial support to as many students as possible, we only ask that you apply if your studies have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
