View or download the following Quarterly Budget & Expenditure Reports (CARES/HEERF data):
Carlow University has been awarded $671,858 for student emergency relief through the CARES Act. The University has signed and returned the Certification and Agreement form necessary to access the funds, and intends to use 100% of these funds to provide emergency financial aid grants to students, within one year of the application date. Funds may only be provided for student expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus. Funds cannot be granted on need alone or due to financial loss because of COVID-19. Recipients must be chosen from among the 1,564 Carlow students who are fully eligible for federal financial aid.
The University awarded the emergency relief as follows: a) approximately $430,000 or 64% of overall allocation in direct grants to students from the initial application process, concluded May 17, 2020, b) approximately $94,000 or 14% of the overall allocation in direct grants to students in Round 2, which concluded June 4, and c) approximately $73,000 or 11% of the overall allocation in direct grants to students in Round 3, which concluded July 13. All grant payments were made directly to students and were not applied toward any outstanding balance on their student account. During the week of August 10, approximately $73,900, which represents 11% of the overall allocation, was distributed to students whose initial request was not fully funded during Rounds 1 – 3.
These distributions generally represent grants for eligible students who were displaced from campus housing, likely had disruption to their planned expenses, and/or needed to purchase adequate supplies to continue their education, which were previously provided by the University. The students’ Expected Family Contribution (EFC) was also considered when determining eligibility and award amount in order to assist those with the greatest need.
The Application for Emergency Assistance could be completed by any Carlow University student. Students who did not qualify for CARES or did not receive the full request amount, were considered for funds from Carlow University Student Emergency Fund.
The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA) provided the U.S. Department of Education approximately $22.7 billion to distribute to institutions of higher education in order to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.
The total amount awarded to Carlow University on March 05, 2021 was $671,858. The Notification of Application was communicated to the students by e-mail, text, and social media, and the application period was open from March 26, 2021 until April 09, 2021.
CRRSAA required institutions to prioritize students with exceptional need. Therefore, eligibility to receive additional funding under this award was restricted to full-time and part-time students who filed a FAFSA. An application form was required to be filled out by each student in order to receive the funding, and the student was given the option of receiving the funds via check or directly applied to their outstanding account balance. The base amount calculated for students was $447.57 with an additional award amount of $250 for Pell eligible students, totaling $697.57.
