The University of Michigan – Ann Arbor identified groups of students with exceptional need, consistent with the guidance presented in CRRSAA and ARP. The student groups selected were undergraduate students that received Pell grants during the 2020-21 academic year, graduate students that borrowed large amounts of federal direct loans, and students that have documented significant losses of financial resources with the Office of Financial Aid as a result of the pandemic. Undergraduate students attending spring/summer have also received emergency grants. Students are encouraged to set up direct deposit, so that if they receive an emergency grant payment receipt can be expedited.
