Central State Students,
CSU has received new federal stimulus funding to provide emergency cash grants to help relieve complications of the Coronavirus pandemic. 

All eligible students must complete a CSU STUDENT STIMULUS FUND APPLICATION FORM by April 9, 2021, to receive these funds via a direct deposit to your account.

To be eligible students must meet the following criteria:
  • Be enrolled by February 15, 2021
  • Be a full-time or part-time student
  • U.S. citizen or resident

Priority will be given to PELL-eligible students.

Eligible students can receive up to $1,000.  You will receive notification of your grant within 14 days of your application submission.

Students have three options to receive their stimulus payments:
·       Apply to your outstanding student account balance
·       Apply to Fall 2021 term charges
·       Receive a cash grant

Students with outstanding tuition, housing, dining, or other fees are encouraged to utilize these funds to reduce those balances.  Please mark in question 6 in the online application how you want your stimulus applied.
