Dear School of the Arts Students:

As the fall semester comes to a close, I know that many of you are still struggling financially as a result of COVID-19. I am grateful to our donors who are making it possible for us to offer a third round of Student Relief Funds to help with urgent financial needs such as housing, cost of living, healthcare, COVID-19-related travel, and childcare expenses. The Office of the Dean is now accepting applications for this grant. All currently enrolled students are eligible to apply, even if you have received relief funds before.

Funds are limited therefore you may not receive the full amount requested. And, as with the previous round of grants, it is suggested that requests not exceed $3,000.

If you are in need of assistance, please complete the Student Relief Fund III application. Our offices of Financial Aid and Student Affairs will continue to review and process applications.

Once again, we are very grateful to the School's supporters for their generosity. Stay safe and be well.
