In April 2020, Barnes Jewish Hospital – Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College (GSON) certified its agreement to participate in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act: Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. Goldfarb School of Nursing received a total of $669,542, of which fifty percent, $334,771, is to be used to provide CARES Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students and $334,771 is to be used for CARES Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Institutions. Institutional funding allocations were set by a formula prescribed in the CARES Act that weighed the number of full-time students who were Pell-eligible with consideration for the total population of the College and the number of student not enrolled full-time online before the coronavirus outbreak, FASFA results were considered as a factor of funding determinations.

CARES Emergency Financial Aid Grants (to Students) are only available to students who are currently in a degree program, meeting satisfactory academic progress, and have Title IV eligibility. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was used to document initial eligibility.  Goldfarb School of Nursing has approximately 400 students participating in Title IV programs. Students who are enrolled in online programs were not eligible to receive the funding.

On May 11, 2020 GSON students were notified of the CARES Act grant through an e-mail that included the eligibility criteria and the CARES Act application.  As of June 30, 2020, the full amount of  $334,771 CARES Emergency Financial Aid Grants to student have been distributed.  A total of 316 students received financial assistance under these awards.

Award amounts varied dependent upon expenses incurred and student need.  Because institutional funding allocations were set by a formula prescribed in the CARES Act that weighed the number of full-time students who were Pell-eligible with consideration for the total population of the College and the number of student not enrolled full-time online before the coronavirus outbreak, FASFA results were considered as a factor of funding determinations.

Goldfarb School of Nursing issued “EFC-based” grants in the amount of $500 to all students with an Expected Family Contribution to College (EFC) of $12,000 or less.

Students who had an EFC above $12,000, or those who receive “EFC-based” grants and have additional financial need were able to submit applications for “need-based” grants. The maximum award for a “need-based” grant was $2,000.

Students with questions about CARES funds may contact Stacy Bogier, Director of Enrollment Management via e-mail at Stacy.Bogier@BarnesJewishCollege.edu.
