Students receive grant from Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund

Virginia Wesleyan Students received an email this past week informing them that they will be receiving a grant from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. This grant was a part of the stimulus package from the federal government. 

The amount of money received was based on each student’s qualifications from the FASFA. The range of grants was from $400 to $900. 

Students were given the option to receive the grant as either an e-check or have those funds deposited directly into the student account to apply for either summer or fall classes.  

Included in the email was a confirmation form that allowed students to make their selection by March 22, 2021 so that the grant can be processed for the student. 

The confirmation form encourages students who still have a balance on their account for their spring semester to apply this grant to their account.
