Cowboy CARES Grant

Cowboy Family,

We understand that the disruption to daily life caused by COVID-19 includes financial hardships for many in the Cowboy Family. With federal funding now available by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, OSUIT is able to provide some financial assistance to our students who have been economically impacted by this global pandemic. We are referring to this relief effort at OSUIT as the Cowboy CARES Emergency Grant.
