College Major:



During the COVID-19 pandemic, almost every activity in many countries stopped due to the lockdown. In the education sector, all institutions were closed although some schools were conducting virtual classes. Upon resumption of academic activities after the lockdown, many students were faced with numerous expenses.

In a bid to help fund some part of the expenses for students, the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) provides the Cares Grant. At the Community College of Vermont (CVV), the Cares Grant is offered to an outstanding student to cover any part of the student’s educational costs or for emergencies due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The amount of the grant is $1,000. It can be used to cover college costs including tuition, books, accommodation, feeding, technology, or healthcare. Eligible students can be U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens.
