CARES Act Provides Direct Aid to Higher Ed

April 13, 2020

St. John Fisher College joined the efforts of many colleges and universities in New York State to advocate for funding to support relief efforts related to COVID-19.

Senator Schumer delivered the CARES Act Coronavirus Stimulus Bill, which will provide $14 billion in direct aid for higher education, including St. John Fisher College and our students.

“I would like to thank Senator Schumer for his tremendous effort to ensure that higher education receives some immediate relief through the Senate’s COVID-19 stimulus bill directly from the federal government,” said Dr. Gerard J. Rooney, president of the College. “This funding will help us to provide much needed financial support for our students and families who have been most directly impacted by this pandemic.”
