August 17, 2020 – Santa Fe College continues to make COVID-19 Emergency Aid grants available to students who are eligible for federal financial aid and have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. These grants, funded by the CARES Act, are available to help address temporary financial crises resulting in personal emergencies relating to food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and childcare. The application for students enrolled for Fall 2020 is available online at sfcollege.edu/covid19aid.
