May 19, 2020 Notice: Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students
Hartwick College will receive federal funding under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students. These emergency financial aid grants will be distributed to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus, expenses such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and child care. Based upon federal guidelines there are 973 students at Hartwick College who qualify to participate in this grant program under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and are therefore eligible to receive these grants. Eligible students were asked to submit information regarding their additional expenses incurred. The application process ended on May 14, 2020. A scoring rubric was used to determine the amount of each grant based on the student’s responses. When payments are issued to students, they will be instructed that they are for the additional costs they have incurred related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
