Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund

During the spring and summer of 2020, Western Carolina University students in need were able to access funding through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), a federal grant program that is part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security, or CARES, Act. These emergency grant funds were available to eligible WCU students who were experiencing unexpected expenses or financial hardships that were directly related to changes in campus operations due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Utilizing CARES Act guidance and a need based funding approach, WCU has fully expended the available funding.
