Press Release: UOG students will benefit from CARES Act funds
The University of Guam will receive $4.5 million in grant funding from the CARES Act. About $2.3 million will be reserved for UOG students to help cover expenses related to the disruption of their education due to the coronavirus.
Details on the program and how funds will be allocated and disbursed will be released soon.
“The funds from the CARES Act will ensure our students receive much-needed financial support to pursue their education,” UOG President W. Thomas Krise said. “Our students will be able to count on some financial respite despite so many unknowns in our current situation. We are working on making funds available as soon as possible.”
The UOG campus has been closed since late March, and all classes have transitioned online for the remainder of the semester.
In preparation for the distribution of funds, students are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office at email@example.com to set up direct deposit and to update their contact information.
