Spring 2021 Emergency Student Grants
(Currently Enrolled Students Only)

Villanova University is providing emergency financial aid grants to students whose lives have been disrupted by the COVID-19 crisis, many of whom are facing financial challenges and struggling to make ends meet.

In Spring 2021, grants are being funded by the federal government through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) II and by the University’s Student Hardship Fund, made possible by institutional funds as well as generous donations from Villanova faculty, staff, alumni and parents.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS

In general, scholarships are given based on merit that is defined by the scholarship program, and grants are given based on demonstrated financial need. A student is considered for Federal, State and Villanova Need-Based Grants simply by applying for financial assistance from Villanova University. Some merit-based scholarships require an application process while others do not. In the spectrum of educational funding, scholarships and grants are the "free money,” which do not need to be repaid.
