CARES Act Funding
The University of Alaska Southeast will be awarding the CARES Act funding from the U.S. Department of Education. These awards will help with expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus, including cost of attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and childcare. UAS’s plan for the CARES Act is to assist students with the greatest need.
