UW-Green Bay Students were Awarded Over $4 Million in Grants This Month | Seehafer News
In early Sept., 2,914 UW-Green Bay students were awarded $1,500 grants for a total of $4,371,000. The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 has provided funding to the University to assist students who may have been impacted by the pandemic. The grants received under this Act can be used for any component of students’ cost of attendance (tuition, housing, food, etc.) or for emergency costs that arise due to the coronavirus, such as health care or child care. If a student wasn’t included in the award but has financial needs, they still have an opportunity to apply for an Emergency Grant. The distribution of the funds is not unique to UW-Green Bay, but amounts of students and dollar amounts can vary by institution.
