Job Description

The Financial Aid Trainee will be trained on Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund COVID activities. A provision included in the American Rescue Plan, signed into law in December 2020, requires institutions receiving aid from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) to use a portion to conduct direct outreach to financial aid applicants about the opportunity to receive a financial aid adjustment due to the recent unemployment of a family member or themselves, if they are considered an independent student. The Financial Aid Trainee will be trained to provide direct outreach to students and parents regarding their loss of income during the pandemic and how this can increase the financial aid that was awarded. Please see the Position Description for detailed information regarding the major responsibilities.
