Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students
Stacey James Institute acknowledges that the institution signed and returned to the Department the Certification and Agreement and the assurance that the Institution has used, or intends to use, no less than 50 percent of the funds received under Section 18004(A)(1) of the CARES Act to provide emergency Financial Aid Grants to students.
$29085.00 is the total amount of funds that the Institution has received from the Department pursuant to the Institution’s Certification and Agreement for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students.
Stacey James Institute was also given $29,085.00 to the Institution for institutional cost.
WHO: The institution determined that all students were equally affected by the pandemic, since all education was campus based. The method used by the institution to determine which students should receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants was calculated by the total amount of funds available to students divided by the number of eligible students. Based on this calculation each student could receive up to $382.69 under the CARES Act.
Guidance to Students: The money will be made available to ALL active eligible students, regardless of previously qualifying for Financial Aid, that have incurred cost related to the disruption of campus operations due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. To be eligible for these funds, you will have to have completed a current year FAFSA, or complete one before submitting your request for reimbursement of those costs related to the disruption of campus operations due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Please submit the request form completed with your current address. The completed form should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress and signed into law to provide economic relief from COVID-19. One section of the CARES Act established the Higher Education Emergency Relief fund and sent money to schools to use for emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the pandemic.
