UH provides $12M in grants to students

University of Hawaii’s 10 campuses have provided $12 million in emergency financial aid grants to more than 20,000 students.

In a post on its website Monday, UH said this completes the disbursement of the first of three allotments from the federally-funded Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, part of the federal coronavirus relief funds.

UH is on track to meet an April deadline to spend the three allotments, a total of $44.9 million. Each portion aims to address critical needs created by the pandemic.

The HEERF grants are being used to cover the cost of attendance, including tuition, food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and child care.
