CARES Act Student Funding

Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School has signed and returned the Certification and Agreement to the Department of Education acknowledging that we will use 50% of the funds received from the CARES Act to award as Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students. We received a total of $13,094 and we are using 50%, or $6,547, in cash grants directly to students. At the time of reporting on June 9,2020 we have not distributed any funds to students as we work through the latest guidance from the federal government as to which students are eligible to receive grants through the CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund and how much each eligible student should receive. It is estimated that 15-20 students will be eligible to participate. There is no need for students to apply. Students will automatically be considered as we complete the process for degerming student eligibility. Eligible students will receive an emailed letter in the coming weeks that indicates that you are eligible to receive funds, when to expect funds and instructions on how to alert CRCDS if you have additional needs.
