Dallas, United States - May 23, 2020 /PressCable/ —
Asher College of Dallas is announcing they will provide financial support to students to help cover additional student expenses during the Coronavirus pandemic. The funds are allocated through grants provided by the new Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law on March 27, 2020. The bi-partisan legislation was necessitated by the pandemic that has halted the global economy, forced millions out of work, and compelled students to conduct their studies through distance learning. The CARES act enables the U.S. Department of Education to direct funding to eligible organizations like Asher College, which can then provide students direct financial assistance through emergency financial grants.
“COVID-19 has caused a global health and economic crisis. During this time of uncertainty and instability, Asher College wants to support our students in every way possible.” Asher President & CEO David Vice said. “Thanks to the CARES Act and the U.S. Department of Education, we will be able to distribute much needed financial assistance directly to our students.”
Current Asher students were notified about the availability of CARES Act funds the week of May 13th. Distribution is expected to begin when funds are received from the Department of Education and Asher verifies the student’s eligibility. President and CEO David Vice said, “Asher College is pleased to have been able to secure this for our students and happy to assist in facilitating the allocation of these funds on their behalf.”
Asher College is proud to provide career training for in-demand, even essential careers, including administrative healthcare workers, pharmacy technicians, as well as information technology and business careers. During this unprecedented time, Asher’s top priority is the health and safety of our students and community; all current Asher students are receiving classroom instruction through distance learning, so they can continue their programs of study even through this global pandemic. Asher College is currently enrolling for all programs.
