CARES Act Funding

The University of Alaska Southeast will be awarding the student portion of the CARES Act funding from the U.S. Department of Education in the amount of $186,470. 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, in accordance with federal guidelines and to set aside some funding for the emergency relief fund.

The financial aid team at UAS is committed to helping students make their college dreams accessible and affordable through scholarships, grants, student employment, loans and other funding resources.
