Financial Aid Announcement / CARES Relief Funds

To: Eligible Students

Delivered: June 2, 2020

Dear Student,

After completing such a disruptive and challenging semester, we hope you are enjoying a much-needed break from your studies. If you are facing financial hardship as a result of the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19, please visit https://www.paulsmiths.edu/covid-19/cares/ to apply for federal assistance through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. Awards in the amount of $250 – $1000 will be made to students with eligible expenses and will continue until the fund has been depleted. Your award will be based on your spring 20 financial aid data (Estimated Family Contribution from the FAFSA) and a consideration of extenuating circumstances.

This fund is available to all students enrolled in the Spring 2020 semester with a FAFSA on file. Requests are being accepted now through April 25, 2021 or until all available funding is awarded.

It’s our hope that this will ease some of your financial burden. Please don’t hesitate to contact financialaid@paulsmiths.edu if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Sonya Stein
Director of Financial Aid
