COVID-19 Quarantine Fund
The COVID-19 Quarantine Fund is a collaborative effort between the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships and the Office of the Dean of Students. Students experiencing financial hardship due to a required COVID-19 quarantine or self-isolation can apply for and receive up to $1400 for hotel and food costs incurred while in quarantine or self-isolation time during fall term. Funding is available through funds received by the University of Oregon through the Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and generous donations to the Dean of Students Students in Crisis Fund.
Due to the limited amount of CARES Act funding the UO will receive for the emergency grants, it is possible that not all requests will be met. However, the University will make every effort possible to extend these funds in an impactful, transparent, and fair manner.
The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships will review your request and may contact you for further information. If a grant is approved, the grant funds will be disbursed to your student account. If you have not already signed up for direct deposit, please do so in DuckWeb in order to facilitate the swift deposit of funds if you are approved for a grant. Importantly, disbursements from this fund will not be applied to outstanding balances on your student account (if any). Rather, the funds will be made available directly to you to defray any COVID-19-related expenses you may have incurred, consistent with the CARES Act.
If you are not eligible for CARES Act Grant funding, the Office of the Dean of Students will review your request and may contact you for further information. If funding is approved for the Students in Crisis fund, the funds will disbursed to your student account and made available directly to you. As with CARES Act funds, we encourage you to sign up for direct deposit.
