CAREs Act Student Emergency Funds
From recent conversations through the media, you all may be aware that the Federal government has designated a portion of the CAREs Act as Emergency Funds to be disbursed to students as emergency financial aid grants. The purpose of these emergency financial aid grants is to help cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.
