Coe initiates disbursement of Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund 奖助金

科伊学院将于5月15日开始发放通过高等教育紧急救援基金(HEERF)提供的学生援助赠款, 2020. HEERF was authorized by Congress as part of the Coronavirus Aid, 救济和经济安全法案.

HEERF紧急财政援助赠款将用于与新型冠状病毒肺炎导致校园运营中断相关的具体费用, 可能包括食物, 住房, 课程材料, 技术, 保健和儿童保健. HEERF funds will not be applied to college debts, charges, fees or other amounts owed to Coe. 符合资格获得HEERF助学金的学生将收到来自财政资助办公室的申请,该申请将发送到他们的校园邮箱.

The college received $762,824 in HEERF funds to be issued directly to eligible students who must:

  • 2020年春季、5月或夏季入学
  • Have expenses related to the disruption of on-campus services due to 新型冠状病毒肺炎
  • 有资格接受第四章的援助
  • 是否已提交2019-20年FAFSA
  • 是否取得了令人满意的学业进步
  • 你是一个.S. 公民或合格的非公民

还通过学生同学会的学生应急基金和校园救济基金向Coe学生分发了大量基本物品和资金.


The Coronavirus Aid 救济和经济安全法案 includes two portions of funding related to higher education:

  1. 高等教育紧急救济基金 provides emergency funding to higher education institutions for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations. Coe applied for these funds to assist with the costs of the business interruption associated with 新型冠状病毒肺炎. We have not received these funds yet but have applied and expect to receive them in the next 30 days.  
  2. 
关怀法案的第二部分 为学生提供经济支持. We received notification this week that we now have access to this funding. We are working through the process to determine who is eligible and will access these funds as soon as this is completed. To be eligible for this assistance, students must meet all of the following criteria:
  • 符合第四章的资格要求. 
  • 
Demonstrate expenses related to the disruption of on campus services, such as the requirement to move off campus and adjustments to distance learning.

  • Have submitted the 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

  • 报名参加2020年春季学期.  

The methodology used for student selection was structured using eligibility determined by the Department of Education. 来自FAFSA的估计家庭贡献(EFC)以及入学状况和学生住房数据被用于创建三个资格组.

Group 1 — Moved off campus during the spring term and demonstrated high financial need.
Group 2 — Moved off campus during the spring term and demonstrated some financial need.
Group 3 — 招收ed at Coe during the spring, May or summer term.

Students in Groups 1 and 2 were sent an email that contained a link to a CARES Emergency Grant form. 那些证实自己因学院中断服务而产生费用的学生,将获得最高600美元的现金补助. Instructions and guidance were provided on the form. 第三组的学生须申请援助,并填写一份“关怀紧急经济援助申请”,才可获考虑资助. 如果第1组和第2组的符合条件的学生在他们最初的CARES Emergency Grant表格上表明他们的开支超过600美元,就会向他们发送申请的电子链接. 被确认为合格但尚未完成表格的学生将收到Coe学院学生金融服务办公室的定期电子邮件提醒.

The Federal Trade Commission has issued a warning to students about phishing emails being received regarding CARES funding. Students should not provide personal information like their social security number or bank account information. Updates to personal information should only be made through my.coe or by contacting the Coe College Office of 学生金融服务.

The below information outlines the sequence of events surrounding securing these funds.
