April 28, 2020

Dear Fort Lewis College students:

Through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, you are eligible to apply for emergency relief funding for coronavirus-related expenses. Due to the disruption of campus operations as a result of the pandemic, you may have experienced unexpected or increased costs for housing, food, childcare, technology, healthcare, or other essential needs.

The CARES Act and FLC can help you recover those costs.

Emergency relief funding is available to students eligible to participate in the Title IV federal aid programs (determined through FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)), or to students able to verify the following: U.S. citizenship or eligible noncitizen; a valid Social Security number; registration with Selective Service (for male students); and a high school diploma, GED, or completion of high school in an approved homeschool setting.

To request reimbursement for coronavirus-related costs, apply online at www.fortlewis.edu/cares-application. Only one application per student is allowed. Submit your request by May 12, 2020 for initial consideration. Qualifying students will receive funds within two weeks after this date.

If you do not qualify or are not eligible for CARES Act funding, you may be eligible for other emergency relief through the Skyhawk Emergency Fund & Persistence Grants.

Questions? Contact Skyhawk Station by phone (970-247-7301) and email (SkyhawkStation@fortlewis.edu) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday – Friday. Please leave a voicemail if no one answers your call. Skyhawk Station is also available for virtual one-on-one meetings. Click here to request a meeting.

Stay safe, Skyhawks!
