Cameron University students are eligible for federal relief funding through CARES Act

Cameron University has received access to $1,749,140 through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund as part of the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security). The funds will be distributed to eligible students to offset unanticipated financial costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Cameron University students have demonstrated their tenacity and commitment to earning a degree over the past six weeks,” says President John McArthur. “Faced with unprecedented challenges and unexpected obstacles, they have taken their finals and completed the Spring 2020 semester. Our students have been forced to sacrifice significant experiences that contribute to their overall collegiate experience. Many have experienced financial hardship. We greatly appreciate the efforts made by our federal elected officials.”

Qualified full-time students will receive $650 each, and qualified part-time students will receive $325 each. Students will receive further information through their Cameron University email accounts.
