CLA Student Emergency Microgrant Application

Through the support of our community and the CLA Microgrant Emergency Fund, MTSU has a dedicated pool of funds available to help College of Liberal Arts majors with emergency needs that may impact their ability to continue their education. These microgrants are designed to provide funding to help address verified needs associated with a student’s education. Students may request the funds to pay off a small prior term balance if that balance is preventing their continuing registration. However, the microgrant will NOT be used to pay off outstanding student debts on the student account automatically. Students may be awarded up to $750 and are eligible to receive this grant only once during their tenure at MTSU.

To be eligible, students must be: in academic good standing, with a minimum of a 2.0 overall cumulative GPA at the time of the request. Students must be classified as degree-seeking and be enrolled in six (6) credit hours during fall/spring semesters and/or enrolled in three (3) credit hours during the summer.  Students must also demonstrate satisfactory academic progress as determined by the MTSU Financial Aid office. Students currently on financial aid warning, probation, or suspension are not eligible. Students receiving other forms of financial aid may not receive the mini-grant if it will cause them to exceed their allowable Total Cost of Attendance calculation. Funds are available to undergraduate, graduate, and international students who are currently enrolled and have a major in the College of Liberal Arts.
