  1. Section 18004(c) of the CARES Act requires the College “to use no less than fifty percent of the funds to provide emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus (including eligible expenses under a student’s cost of attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care).”
  2. Accordingly, the College has developed an application so that students who have incurred expenses related to the disruption of campus operations can apply for funds.  As funds are limited, requests for funding requests are being limited to $2,000 or less.
  3. The application period has ended for this round of funding.
  4. To document compliance with the CARES ACT requirements, there are some general qualifications which include: must be a US citizen or eligible non-citizen; have a valid SSN; have registered with the Selective Service if male, have a high school diploma or GED, are some common qualifiers.  Students who don’t qualify for CARES ACT funding are encouraged to complete the application as other funding may be available to assist in meeting the student’s needs.
