Midwestern Seminary and CARES Act Funds July 15, 2020

In May 2020, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary became a recipient of the CARES Act. In accordance with the details of the grant, the institution plans to award no less than 50 percent of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide emergency financial aid grants to students. The institution received $233,499 from the Department of Education specifically for emergency financial aid grants to students.

As of July 8, 2020, the institution has disbursed $146,365 in emergency financial aid grants to 90 students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act. Students who were potentially eligible were encouraged to complete the FAFSA and an emergency aid request form. Other students who were already eligible were distributed funds based on expenses incurred, as calculated by the institution.

Spurgeon College or Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary students who feel they may be eligible should complete the 2019-20 FAFSA and complete an emergency aid request. When both of these requirements have been met, the institution will review the aid request and distribute funds, if allowable. For additional questions, please reach out to financialaid@mbts.edu.
