Reach Higher Emergency Grant Program

Since 2019, Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher campaign has been part of Common App. In partnership with Scholarship America, we are providing access to emergency grants to support current college students financially impacted by COVID-19. The Emergency Grant Program provides grants up to $1,000 so that students can meet their needs quickly and focus on their education. This grant is intended to help with expenses interfering with students’ ability to continue their education, such as unexpected car repair costs or help buying groceries because of job loss.
