Southern Tech is pleased to announce participation in the Cares Act
Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund – Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students.
Emergency grant funds are offered to post-secondary students, in addition to any other financial aid received, for emergency expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.
The Certification and Agreement forms have been submitted and funds have been received to help offset additional expenses for post-secondary students who have committed to continuing their programs through Distance Learning for the remainder of this school year.
No less than 50% of the grant funds, or $126,027, will be allocated equally to eligible post-secondary students who complete and return a Cares Act form. Students must attest to meeting the Title IV eligibility requirements listed on the form and to use of the funds for allowable expenses.
Eligible expenses under a student’s cost of attendance include technology, course materials, health care, child care, food and housing. At this time approximately 98 students have been pre-determined to be eligible to receive a $1,300 grant in the form of a check issued directly to the student. To date 66 students have applied and been successfully granted a total of $85,800.
Students should be sure to check their canvas email for information and forms or contact the Financial Aid Department.
