Drury University will distribute another $1.99 million in federal pandemic relief aid directly to students. The funds are from the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan (ARP) federal stimulus granted to the university earlier in 2021. The payments mark the third such federal student relief efforts from the university since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students will receive up to $1,500 based on financial need as documented by their Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Funds are prioritized for students with the greatest need, as directed by the ARP guidelines. Drury has a satellite campus at the Piney River Technical Center.

All 2,280 currently enrolled, degree-seeking students in Drury’s day school, Drury GO and the College of Graduate Studies will receive some level of direct payment from the university’s ARP funds. This disbursement represents approximately half of the university’s remaining student relief funds.

Emails to eligible students begin going out this week, with funds processed according to the student’s preference for direct deposit or paper check by Oct. 15.
