COVID-19 Emergency Assistance is a one-time, non-traditional financial aid grant which will be provided to eligible BC students who have incurred expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19 (including but not limited to expenses such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, child care and transportation).
