Centenary has received additional funds for students from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III (HEERF III) authorized by the American Rescue Plan (ARP).

HEERF funds will be distributed directly to enrolled Centenary students as outlined in the chart below. The amounts listed will be distributed in fall 2021 and most likely spring 2022 as well, and may be used for any purpose.

A small amount of additional funds are available for students who have had a change in circumstances and may need additional financial assistance for the 2021-2022 academic year. Please visit our Financial Aid webpage for more information.

Students will receive an email with an individual award amount and information about how to access the funds. Please send an email to finaid@centenary.edu with any additional questions.

The grant amount will be based on the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) as calculated by the student’s 2021-22 FAFSA. The grant amounts listed below are for students who are enrolled full-time in a degree-seeking program. If a student is enrolled less than full-time, the grant will be prorated. Grants are only available for students enrolled at least half-time (6 hours for undergraduate & MAT students, 3 hours for MBA students).
