Golden State Education And Training Grant Program

The COVID-19 pandemic caused millions of Californians to lose their jobs and many have been unable to find living wage employment since. The Governor and the Legislature opted to use $472.5 million in one-time American Rescue Plan Act funds and $27.5 million in one-time General Fund to provide grants to help these individuals reskill or upskill and transition back into the workforce. The program was established and funded in the 2021 California Budget Act, mainly with one-time federal COVID recovery dollars, to offer this one-time financial incentive.

What are the Eligibility Requirements?

To be eligible for the Golden State Education and Training Grant Program (GSETGP), a student must:

  • Have lost their job due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Have not been able to find an equivalent paying job since
  • Not have been enrolled in an education or training program, college or university that they were displaced from employment
  • Meet the income and asset requirements associated with Cal Grant A eligibility

 

How Much Can A Student Receive?

The California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) intends for awards to be $2,500. 

Do students have to be enrolled full time in for-credit instruction?

No. Students need to be enrolled but there is neither a minimum unit requirement nor a satisfactory academic progress requirement. Noncredit students are eligible for the grant and encouraged to apply.

How do I Apply?

To apply online at https://gsetg.csac.ca.gov/landing.

Students will be asked to login to their existing CSAC account, or be asked to create one.

What happens after I Apply?
