Marketing, student services, and instructional staff were primarily responsible for informing students about the availability of CARES grant funding. Students were required to complete a brief electronic application within a two-week application period from the date of notification to the deadline.
Financial Aid personnel were responsible for organizing the supporting documentation for review and approval by the Heads of School prior to distribution.
