Students can improve their reading and writing

LCC is distributing grants
of $1,000 to about 1,830 students who have exceptional financial need. The
money comes from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), which
colleges use to assist students with educational costs or emergency costs
related to COVID-19.
We previously awarded this grant to students with exception need who
were enrolled in the spring semester, and then opened applications to all
students. The process will work the same way this summer. Students who received
money in the spring are eligible again, if they are enrolled in summer classes.
At this time, students do not
need to apply for the grants. LCC is using FAFSA information to automatically
send the grants to qualifying students. Eligibility is based on expected
family contributions, as determined by FAFSA.
On June 21, applications will open to students who did not automatically
receive the grant, but who have emergency costs due to the coronavirus.
Students approved through the application will also receive $1,000. A FAFSA
will not be required, but students must be U.S. citizens or a noncitizen who is
eligible for federal financial aid. Applications will be open for three weeks.
Students will receive multiple communications about the opportunity, but we
appreciate your help in passing the word!
Funds will be sent directly to students according to their established refund
preference, which is the quickest way to receive a refund. Students who are not
able to establish a refund preference will have funds sent to their mailing
address. Students should verify their refund preference and mailing address in
Funds will not automatically cover any outstanding balances. However, students
can choose to use the money to cover that balance. Students can check whether
they are eligible for funds by signing into Banner Self-Service and selecting
Financial Aid. On the “Student Requirements” tab, eligible students will see
HEERF Funding Summer with a status of “in progress.” Once the funds have been
sent to the student, the status will be updated to “approved” and a message
will be sent to the student. If you receive any questions from students, please
direct them to the Financial Aid Office.

Insurance and Risk Management major Sara Self
placed first in a national white paper contest with her timely paper, “Pandemics: Insuring
the Uninsurable.” The paper explored several reasons why pandemics are
classified as uninsurable and posed solutions that could provide
pandemic-related coverages in the future.
The contest is sponsored twice each year by the Wholesale and Specialty
Insurance Association (WSIA), with the goal of expanding surplus lines
awareness and knowledge for college students studying risk management and
insurance, actuarial science, finance and business. Winning papers are
published on the WSIA website and winners receive a monetary award.
Self is the vice president of LCC’s Gamma Mu chapter of the Gamma Iota Sigma
fraternity, which promotes student growth and interest in the insurance
industry. She has also been recently accepted to Northwood University’s 3+1
program to pursue a bachelor’s degree in insurance and risk management.
