Northwest Missouri State University will be getting $4.8 million dollars in federal funding as part of student financial aid for COVID-19. Senator Roy Blunt announced Friday Missouri schools will get $103 million in total as part of a $14.2 billion Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. This is the first phase of funds, with $6 billion designated for student expenses. Students will get the money through the school via emergency cash grants. The aid is part of the $2 Trillion coronavirus relief package Congress approved last month.
