UPDATE: On January 20, 2021, Mitchell Hamline School of Law received $106,447 from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) for use for student financial support.
Mitchell Hamline previously received $212,893 in funding from the Department of Education in Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HERRF). A Certification of Agreement was signed by then President and Dean Peter Knapp and submitted to the Department of Education acknowledging in accordance with Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES ACT that the school intends to use no less than 50 percent of the funds that were received for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students.
Additional funds were also available for student emergency funding through the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE).
Funds were also provided through a generous grant from Access Lex, and contributions from the SBA in Spring 2020. All HEERF, FIPSE, Access Lex and SBA funds have been awarded.
The estimated total number of students at Mitchell Hamline School of Law that are eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in the Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and those eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act is 806. This number is based on Spring 2020 enrollment and Title IV eligibility.
These funds are intended to provide limited financial support for Mitchell Hamline students for expenses including eligible expenses under a student’s cost of attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care. If you have experienced unexpected or additional expenses due to COVID-19, you are encouraged to apply for these funds. These funds are not intended to replace lost income.
To provide support for the most students, funding will be limited to $2000 for each grant request and priority will be given to students who have not previously received emergency funding. Students may submit multiple grant requests as financial needs change.
Grants will be disbursed via e-refund. If students do not have access to e-refund, please contact email@example.com with questions.
