Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) Application Form

The recent federal pandemic relief law includes a Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), and St. John’s has received funding from HEERF that may be distributed to students with financial hardships. The funding can be used by students for any component of the cost of attendance (tuition, food, housing, health care, and child care, for example) or for other emergency costs.

All students enrolled since March 13, 2020 with financial hardships are eligible for HEERF (including domestic, international, undergraduate, and graduate students). The law requires that the college prioritize students with exceptional need, such as students who receive Pell Grants, are receiving other forms of federal need-based financial aid, have faced significant unexpected expenses, have lost employment (for yourself or your family), or other extraordinary financial circumstances. Also, in accordance with the law, we are prioritizing domestic undergraduate students, including citizens, permanent residents, refugees, asylum seekers, DACA recipients, other DREAMers, and similar undocumented students.

If you would like to apply for funding, please complete the form below. If you have questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

Note: As of February 1, 2022, the HEERF program is discontinued for students on the Santa Fe campus.
As of May 11, 2022, the HEERF program is discontinued for students on the Annapolis campus.
