Asher College has secured funds to support students financially and help relieve the cost of student expenses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The newly created Emergency Stabilization Grants program of the CARES Act will provide the funding.

Dallas, United States - May 23, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Asher College of Dallas is announcing they will provide financial support to students to help cover additional student expenses during the Coronavirus pandemic. The funds are allocated 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 signed into law on March 27, 2020. The bi-partisan legislation was necessitated by the pandemic that has halted the global economy, forced millions out of work, and compelled students to conduct their studies through distance learning. The CARES act enables the U.S. Department of Education to direct funding to eligible organizations like Asher College, which can then provide students direct financial assistance 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.”

Current Asher students were notified 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 verifies 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.

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

May 29, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction. So, the pair is working together using data from sources such as satellites, sonar and radar to keep a closer eye on how many whales are in the ocean. The effort has an easy to understand name for a project involving complex data and surveillance — the aquarium and firm are calling the project...

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

May 29, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

May 29, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

May 29, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
