New Federal Grant - You Are Eligible - Survey

CARES Act Financial Support

Have you been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic? Were you not able to utilize your meal plan? Did you move home and are still paying rent? State Tech is creating grants for eligible students using funds from the CARES Act.

State Tech has submitted the required Department of Education paperwork to receive CARES Act funding, which will go entirely to students.  The amount of money an individual student will receive will be determined based on the total need of our student body.  To help us determine the need of our students, we encourage you to answer the questions in this survey (survey is now closed) by May 1, 2020 at 12:00 noon. 

If you do not respond to this survey, you will not receive any CARES Act funding.

After May 1st, State Tech will notify students of the grant amount they will receive through a funding announcement. Funding announcements will be sent to your State Tech e-mail.  The CARES Act Grants will be mailed to the address we have on file for you at the college in the form of a check.

If you have any questions about the survey, please do not hesitate to reply to this e-mail.
