These emergency relief funds will be distributed based on federal government guidelines requiring institutions to distribute funds to specific student populations who are defined as having exceptional financial need.
Lancaster Bible College has defined students with having exceptional need to include priority to Pell Grant recipients. On that basis we developed three populations of students with exceptional need. These include undergraduate Pell Grant recipients, undergraduates who are not Pell Grant recipients but have high unmet financial need (up to 12000 EFC), and graduate students who have high financial need (up to 12000 EFC) as determined by the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Students must be enrolled at least half-time.
The total amount of funds that LBC has received is $2,912,927.
The total amount distributed to date is $2,620,450 to 1,543 students.
Funds will be available until they are exhausted. They will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
