Thousands of selected Americans around the United States have received stimulus checks worth up to $3,000 only days before Christmas.
Stimulus Checks To Specific Group of People
In a recently published article in The U.S. Sun, Under Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan, the Higher Education Emergency Assistance Fund provided about $40 billion in pandemic relief to students and institutions. Stimulus checks have been sent to students by colleges as a means of assisting them in meeting their financial obligations.
In the first round of stimulus funds, George Washington University got $9.1 million, and in the second and third rounds, around $14 million. The money was open to students who had registered at the institution after March 13, 2020.
The Hatchet adds that university officials estimate that the assistance has been provided to roughly 10,000 applicants. Lexi Plaisted, a freshman, got a stipend of around $800 and said she was “surprised” by it.
Other Universities that Distribute Stimulus Checks
Grants of $1,750 or $3,000 are available to Duke University students, according to a statement on the school’s website. Students may use the money to pay for their education, food, housing, healthcare, or child care costs, among other things.
Payouts will begin in December, according to officials. It’s time to start thinking about December awards for students at the City University of New York (CUNY). Student award recipients will be informed by mid-to-late November, according to the city’s university system. A minimum grant amount will be provided to all students.
Meanwhile, the American Rescue Act has given the University of Rhode Island more than $15.5 million. In late November, the institution said that it would be dismantling a block grant. According to “anticipated family contribution” and the number of college credits earned, grants might vary from $1,500 to $2,500.
