CARES Act Funding
WHAT WE DO KNOW: The CARES Act funds are for the sole and exclusive purpose of providing emergency financial aid grants to students for their EXPENSES related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child-care expenses. It is only available to Federal Title IV eligible students. Students who were enrolled exclusively online on March 13, 2020 are NOT eligible according to the federal government.
The language above is taken directly from the grant agreement. Funds are for EXPENSES incurred DUE TO THE DISRUPTION OF CAMPUS OPERATIONS and not income lost. Simpson students will need to complete a short application to be considered for CARES funding. This application will be delivered through the SC Connect portal and it will be a web-based application.
