Students at Gulf Coast State College get financial aid for COVID relief



The next round of stimulus checks are still up in the air as lawmakers go back and forth on passing a trillion-dollar coronavirus relief plan.

But for thousands of students at Gulf Coast State College, their bank accounts just got a little bigger.

They’re distributing 1.3 million dollars to students after receiving federal funding for COVID-19 relief. These funds can be used for emergency expenses that arise due to Coronavirus or for any component of the student’s cost of attendance, such as tuition, books, technology, food, housing, health care, etc. These funds are in addition to the 1.2 million dollars disbursed to students in the Spring 2020 and the Summer 2020 semesters.
