Share This Press Release

Asher College of Las Vegas has announced they will use funds allocated by the newly created Emergency Stabilization Grants program of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to support students financially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Asher College Las Vegas will provide financial support to students to help cover student expenses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The funds have been made available through grants provided by the new Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was bi-partisan legislation signed into law on March 27, 2020. The CARES Act was created due to the Coronavirus pandemic that has ground the global economy to a halt, forced millions out to become unemployed, and compelled schools to transition to distance learning. The CARES act enables eligible organizations like Asher College to receive funds from the U.S. Department of Education to provide direct financial assistance to students through emergency financial grants.

“COVID-19 has caused a global health and economic crisis. During this time of uncertainty and instability, Asher College wants to support our students in every way possible.” Asher President & CEO David Vice said. “Thanks to the CARES Act and the U.S. Department of Education, we will be able to distribute much needed financial assistance directly to our students.”

Asher notified current students about the availability of CARES Act funds the week of May 13th. Distribution is expected to begin when funds are received from the Department of Education and Asher is able to verify the student’s eligibility. President and CEO David Vice said, “Asher College is pleased to have been able to secure this for our students and happy to assist in facilitating the allocation of these funds on their behalf.”

Asher College is proud to provide career training for in-demand, even essential careers, including administrative healthcare workers, pharmacy technicians, as well as information technology and business careers. During this unprecedented time, Asher’s top priority is the health and safety of our students and community; all current Asher students are receiving classroom instruction through distance learning, so they can continue their programs of study even through this global pandemic. Asher College is currently enrolling for all programs.
