CARES Act Student Emergency Fund Application​

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provided funds to the University to directly support students whose lives and educations have been disrupted by the coronavirus outbreak.  These funds are designed to prioritize students with the greatest need and ensure that funds are distributed as widely as possible. We recognize the COVID-19 pandemic has caused considerable disruptions and presents unparalleled challenges for many students and their families, and we are committed to delivering these funds as quickly as possible.
