The U.S. Department of Education has announced that Fort Worth’s Texas Wesleyan University will receive $1,857,910 million in grants from the CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, with $928,000 going toward students’ financial assistance.
These funds come directly from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the third coronavirus relief package.
“As a former educator, I know firsthand that nothing strengthens our country, economy, and local communities like investments in high-quality education,” said U.S. Rep Kay Granger, R-Fort Worth.
“Across the country, students and schools of all levels have adapted to these unprecedented and challenging times, proving that quality education can and does happen anywhere. However, far too many college students have had not just their educations, but also their lives disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, and are facing financial hardship,” Granger said.
Granger is the top Republican on the House Appropriations Committee.
