EOP “Carroll” Grants are based on students' low-income status. Students must be Pell Grant or Dream Act Scholarship recipients as verified by the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office.
Priority is given to students who have exhausted all of their subsidized loans. Students who submit grant requests and have remaining unused subsidized loan awards may only be eligible for 50% of the individual grant limits.
Grants will be awarded for expenses incurred after June 1, 2016 that fall into the following two areas:
Medical/dental expenditures not covered by family or student health insurance.
Eyeglass expenditures not covered by family or student health insurance.
Graduate School Prep:
Application expenses for graduate schools
Prep Courses for graduate admissions testing (GRE, LSAT, etc.)
COMPLETED GRANT APPLICATIONS MUST INCLUDE DOCUMENTATION OF EXPENSES INCURRED BY STUDENT (I.E., RECEIPTS, FORMAL ESTIMATES). STUDENTS MAY RECEIVE UP TO $600 OF DISCRETIONARY GRANT PER ACADEMIC YEAR. * Please note we encourage you to consult with a counselor if you have any questions.*
***Eligible students may be awarded up to $300 for each of these two areas totaling up to $600. Students may submit separate applications for each area or submit both health and grad expenses in one application. Carroll Grants will be approved until all funds are exhausted.***
Please Note: Grant Application and documentation is forwarded to the Financial Aid Office for final approval. Any outstanding balance due to the university will be debited from the Discretionary Grant award (i.e., library fines, locker fees, housing, etc). The remaining balance of the approved Carroll Grant will be disbursed to the student.
The deadline to submit a Carroll Grant application is March 17, 2017.
Processing time can take several weeks. If you have any questions concerning our Carroll Grant, please feel free to call (510) 642-7224 or visit us at 119 Cesar Chavez Student Center.
