The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation recognizes that the current global pandemic has disrupted many of our applicants’ financial situations. The recently passed CARES Act provides “funding to institutions to provide emergency financial aid grants to students whose lives have been disrupted, many of whom are facing financial challenges and struggling to make ends meet.” If COVID-19 has been the cause of a job loss, salary reduction or other financial hardship for your family, you may wish to appeal to your college’s financial aid office to ask for an increase in aid. Even if you have not received financial aid in the past, you can still appeal to your school’s financial aid office for financial assistance. For a step-by-step guide with tips and recommendations on how to appeal, see this helpful tip sheet and this Forbes article. Please note, the Scholarship Foundation cannot assist you with this process. Instead, you will need to work with your school’s financial aid office directly.
