Update: As of May 15, 2020, Daemen College has awarded all Federal Stimulus dollars as outlined in the Report.  We will update the campus community and open a new link if new funds become available.

The initial disbursement of stimulus dollars, that Daemen College will be receiving, is to be used exclusively to assist students and their families for “direct payment of grants to students for their expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child-care.”  A committee has been set up comprised of administrators from Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, Diversity and Inclusion, and Financial Aid.  The committee developed a simple, straightforward process for students who have been directly affected by COVID-19 to request funds. With the President’s encouragement, the application process is inclusive of ALL students.

Below are some FAQ’s of the process and parameters being used.  Please read carefully and note that the guidance from the US Department of Education continues to vary so changes could be made to this process and/or the criteria used based on revised guidance.
