As of 5/21/2020, $1,912,000 has been distributed to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act.
An estimated 7,144 students are potentially eligible for these funds. As of May 21, 2020, 3,825 students have received funds under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act.
Slippery Rock University used known financial need to determine the recipients who have received funds as of May 21, 2020. As a student must be eligible to file a FAFSA form, we used current FAFSA information on file in order to distribute funds quickly to our student body for which we could assess need levels. These students received $500 disbursements.
