West Texas A and M University is offering additional funding to returning students this semester.

The money comes from the WT Cares Program, and it’s for those with unique needs and financial hardships from the Covid 19 pandemic.

Hardships are defined as meeting tuition and fees, housing and food insecurities, medical expenses, and lack of education support or supplies.

Under the WT Cares program, the University can apply the grant money to tuition and fee balances, including outstanding book costs and loans.

Eligible full-time students can get up to 15-hundred dollars and part-time students can get one-half of the grant their full-time peers receive.

Funds are available until March 31st.
