Central State University Students To Receive $1.8 Million Federal Emergency Cash Grant
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on May 07, 2021 |
An expected $1.8 million of emergency federal stimulus money will be divided among Central State University’s students, the university announced today
Depending on the criteria for disbursement, a student enrolled during the Spring 2020 semester will be eligible to receive up to $1,000 as part of the $2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
The CARES Act included a nationwide $14 billion Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund to help students during the Coronavirus pandemic.
"This pandemic has disrupted all of our lives especially, students and their families," said Central State President Cynthia Jackson-Hammond. "We hope that the disbursement will relieve some of that disruption."
When the relief funds are received by the University, allocated amounts will be issued through direct deposits into students’ accounts. University officials anticipate that the funds will be released by the federal government by May 1.
These relief funds are intended to provide emergency financial assistance to students for the unexpected costs they incurred related to the disruption of campus operations.
Central State’s allocation from this fund was developed based on the funding formula prescribed in the CARES Act.
