HEERF II

On December 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriates Act (CRRSAA) was signed into law allocating funds to the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II). Under HEERF II, Evangel University (EU) received funds to provide emergency financial aid grants to students to assist with the cost of attendance or emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus such as: tuition; food; housing; health care (including mental); and child care.

Evangel University received $925,362 and disbursed $928,440 to assist students using the designated student portion of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II). The University provided students with the option to apply the HEERF II funds to their Evangel student account or receive a check payable to the student. Eligible students in the Springfield, Missouri area were given an opportunity to pick up the checks in person at the Evangel Campus and all other eligible students were mailed checks to the home address on record.

Eligibility and awards were determined based on the following factors:

  • Students must have been enrolled as a degree-seeking student at Evangel University on March 5, 2021 when the fund allocations were determined. Non-degree seeking, non-credit, and dual enrolled students were not included.
  • Students in the traditional undergraduate residential programs on the main campus, James River College, College of Adult and Graduate Studies, and Assemblies of God Theological Seminary were included.
  • Only U. S. citizens were included. International, undocumented, and DACA students were not included.
  • Based on guidance receive from the Department of Education, funding was prioritized by students with the greatest need. The allocation of funds is based on the Evangel University Cost of Attendance, your Expected Family Contribution if you filed the FAFSA, grants and scholarships you are receiving to help assist with expenses and eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant. Unmet federal need after scholarships and grants was also used in the formula to determine allocation amounts. Unmet need for this purpose was calculated by subtracting the Expected Family Contribution as well as scholarships and grants from the Cost of Attendance. The Cost of Attendance includes direct and indirect expenses.
