WBU CARES Act Grant Application

WBU has requested grant funding from the U.S. Department of Education designated by the CARES Act to provide emergency assistance to our students.  These funds are intended to help students cover emergency expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19. Eligible expenses may include cost of attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology and medical expenses.

To be considered for CARES funds, the Department of Education requires students to file a 2019-2020 FAFSA and be eligible for Title IV aid.  Due to the limited allocation of grant money provided to WBU by the Department of Education, the grant will not cover the full amount of expenses incurred by every student.  The following application will provide us with the information to determine how to allocation and distribution of these emergency funds.   For more information please contact Dr. Andrew Watson, Director of Financial Aid at rsteele@williamsbu.edu.

The deadline to apply for funding is July 6, 2020.
