The Mission Asset Fund (MAF) offers a $500 emergency grant for California college students affected by COVID-19. To apply for a California College Student Grant, students must be:
- Be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate program at a California Community Colleges, California State University, or University of California campus.
- Have completed at least one year of coursework (24 semester units or 36 quarter units).
- Be able to provide a transcript (unofficial is fine).
- Be able to provide either their Student Aid Report, showing an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) below $5,576, or your California College Promise Grant Fee Waiver (BOG Fee Waiver).
At the time of this post, their site was down due to technical issues. When it’s working, students should click on ‘Apply Now’ to start their application. Once submitted, they will hear from MAF within 1 business day and if approved, $500 will be deposited directly into their bank account within 2-5 business days.
