In the past two years, college students in the United States have heard a lot about COVID-19. Say’s Dr Lane Sebring, this new federal legislation has made it more difficult for students to receive financial aid, but it hasn’t been clear how exactly this will impact each individual student. I’m here to break down what COVID-19 means for scholarships and how it will affect your chances at getting money for school.
The COVID-19 Act is a new legislation that makes a lot of changes to how schools and universities can apply for and award scholarships.
The COVID-19 Act is a new legislation that makes a lot of changes to how schools and universities can apply for and award scholarships. The goal of this act was to make the scholarship process more fair, but it also has some unintended consequences that you should be aware of as a student or prospective student.
The COVID-19 Act was passed in 2020 by Congress and signed into law by President [name]. It’s named after Senator [name] who sponsored it and helped get it passed through Congress. The act consists of two parts: Part 1 deals with regulation changes made by schools and universities when awarding scholarships; Part 2 deals with how students apply for scholarships at those institutions (more on this later).
It is important to note that the act only impacts scholarship money awarded on the basis of financial need.
It is important to note that the act only impacts scholarship money awarded on the basis of financial need. It does not impact scholarships awarded on the basis of academic merit or athletic ability, which are considered “merit-based” awards.
Some types of scholarships have been completely eliminated by the law.
Some types of scholarships have been completely eliminated by the law. Scholarships awarded based on athletic ability, academic merit or other factors unrelated to financial need are no longer available to students. Similarly, any scholarships that are awarded based on race or gender are no longer available due to COVID-19’s stipulations against discrimination based on those characteristics. Finally, scholarships awarded based on religious affiliation are also no longer allowed under COVID-19 because they violate its nondiscrimination clause
The impact of COVID-19 will be felt throughout higher education institutions across the country.
The impact of COVID-19 is already being felt throughout higher education institutions across the country. Many schools have already made changes to their scholarship policies in order to comply with COVID-19 and some students may see changes in the amount or type of scholarships they receive.
The confusion over what types of scholarships are affected by the law has led many students and parents to ask questions about how their school will handle these types of awards moving forward.
With the passing of the COVID-19 Act, there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding scholarships. The law will impact every university and school in America and it will take years before we know exactly how much this new legislation will affect students. As always, we encourage you to do your homework on any scholarship opportunities that interest you so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not they are worth pursuing.
