The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress in March. It included funds to assist college and university students who have been financially impacted by a disruption to their semester as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. These funds were sent to colleges and universities to provide emergency grants to students. These grants, which do not need to be repaid, were meant to cover expenses such as:
- cost of attendance
- unforeseen food costs
- housing costs
- course materials
- health care and childcare expenses
Applications for CARES Act Funding is closed as funds have been distributed.
Carroll University Student Emergency Fund
The Student Emergency Fund provides limited grants and short-term, interest-free loans to Carroll University students experiencing financial hardship due to unexpected circumstances. Students may request financial assistance for any critical costs they cannot otherwise cover (such as medical bills, utilities, transportation costs, or personal or academic supplies). All requests are handled thoughtfully, confidentially, and on a case-by-case basis. Students may submit requests for emergency funding through the university chaplain at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: Emergency funds may NOT be applied to tuition, fees or housing costs owed directly to the university at this time. Students with financial need related directly to tuition, fees or on-campus housing should contact email@example.com.
