We’re working to transform local reporting on college by combining the sophistication of a national newsroom that knows a topic very deeply with the engagement of a community newsroom that knows a place very deeply.

Where is the Higher Ed Relief Money Going?

The federal relief package — the CARES Act — passed by Congress last month will send about $14-billion directly to colleges and universities. On Thursday, the Department of Education released details about how that money would be allocated. The law split the money based on how many students a college has, favoring those that enroll more Pell Grant recipients. Half of each institution’s money is earmarked for emergency financial aid grants for students. You can also search this table to see how much every institution is getting.
