University of Montevallo providing financial support to students in wake of COVID-19

The University of Montevallo has taken multiple steps to provide financial relief to students dealing with the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

In April, the University approved refunds for unused housing and meal plans for students who were required to leave campus as a result of the pandemic. UM is in the process of distributing those refunds directly to students.

In addition, the University is distributing $1.2 million in federal emergency funds directly to students to assist them with the hardships they are facing as a result of COVID-19.

Shortly after students were required to leave campus because of the pandemic, UM also established the COVID-19 Student Relief Fund, which has provided limited emergency financial support to UM students who have been unable to meet essential expenses due to a temporary or unexpected hardship caused in the wake of the pandemic.

“We are immensely grateful to all of those in the UM family who worked diligently to facilitate access to this funding for direct distribution to our students,” said Dr. John W. Stewart III, UM president. “We are especially grateful to our congressional delegation and their staff for their help and support at this time.”
