Update: October 22, 2021

Fall 2021 process is now open

Daemen College will once again be awarding federal dollars to students in need.  The disbursement of stimulus dollars that Daemen College will be receiving is to be used in part 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.”  Once again, students can "opt-in" to allowing any money received be used to cover current or past balances owed to the College.

We will be using the same committee structure as we did previously 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. Per current federal government guidelines, the application process is inclusive of all students who are US citizens, regardless of the modality in which they took their courses.

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.
