Message from the President: CARES Act funding available to support students

Dear UT Health San Antonio students:

I am pleased to announce that UT Health San Antonio has received an award of $772,901 from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act grant to assist students facing financial hardship as a result of the campus disruption from COVID-19. These funds are distributed through the U.S. Department of Education, which has established instructions for how students become eligible to receive these federal funds.

At UT Health San Antonio, eligible students are invited to apply for CARES Act awards. The maximum amount awarded to a student who is enrolled at UT Health San Antonio during the Spring Semester 2020 is $2,000. Detailed information about the application process, including instructions on filing a CARES Act grant application, are found through the website of the Office of Veteran Services and Financial Aid.

UT Health San Antonio is grateful for the support our U.S. Congress and the White House have directed to aid students in financial need.


William L. Henrich, M.D., MACP
President and Professor of Medicine
