There are no remaining CARES Act funds available.

Ball State University has been awarded CARES Act funding from the U.S. Department of Education in the amount of $15.2 million. Of that, $7.6 million is to be used to provide direct emergency assistance for students who were enrolled in on-campus classes during the Spring 2020 term.

Our goal is to assist as many students as possible, in accordance with federal guidelines.
