Students May Still Be Eligible for CARES Act Assistance
Aug. 12, 2020
There’s good news for Gateway Community College students who did not fill out a FAFSA: They may still be eligible to receive a CARES Act Cash Assistance.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law by President Trump in March 2020. This economic relief package is aimed at protecting the American people from the public health and economic impacts of COVID-19. Until now, undergraduate, graduate and medical degree-seeking students were eligible, but must have submitted a 2019-2020 FAFSA by June 30.

Queen of Quotes Inspires Daughters
Barnetta Haywood’s daughters call her the “queen of quotes” and for good reason. Haywood, a New Haven resident who graduates from Gateway Community College this June with an associate’s degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences, can’t help but share inspirational maxims, even in casual conversation, because, as she puts it, she “lives through affirmations.” She continues, “I want to be a living example of how a woman should be despite what's thrown at you. I want my daughters to know it’s never an option to fail. It’s up to you whether or not you succeed. You are defined by what you choose.” Read More >>
