Albany Law School awarded Emergency Financial Aid Grants under the ARP (a)(1) program to all students who were enrolled in the 2020-2021 academic year to help offset additional costs incurred by them as a result of the COVID pandemic. Students received the same award based on their academic program.

The application in the above link has been e-mailed weekly to students by the Student Affairs Office in their regular weekly update communication.  Students are asked to provide documentation to support their need, as best they can.  Direction is given that the Emergency Financial Aid Grants do not cover lost income.
