CARES Act Funding and Information for Students

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is intended to provide relief due to the impacts of COVID-19. The act contained provisions specifically intended to provide relief for higher education institutions and their students. On April 16, Lake Superior College signed and returned to the Department of Education the Certification and Agreement to receive funding that will  be used to provide emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus. Lake Superior College received $878,576 to be distributed to students who are/were enrolled at LSC this Spring Semester, on/prior to March 6, 2020.
