Dear Manhattan School of Computer Technology Student,

Manhattan School is continuing to closely monitor the situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and providing our students with guidance and support as best we can. Manhattan School is pleased to announce that we have now successfully obtained access to grants from the Department of Education to be disbursed to our students who have incurred expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus (COVID-19), such as food, housing course materials, technology, health care and/or child care expenses. This grant is a source of free money that does not need to be repaid.

At this time, Manhattan School is sending for your careful review the attached Request for Emergency Financial AID GRANT FUNDS which must be filled out, signed, and emailed back so the school can process these grants, and send you these much needed funds as quickly as possible.

Best,

Galina Shumskaya

School Director
