Even during times of economic prosperity, a large portion of college students are financially strapped. Now faced with the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of these college students are facing significant financial hardships for the foreseeable future. Dr. Steven Currall, the President of the University of South Florida, discussed with Abby Melone the multiple initiatives his school has taken on to financially assist students during this crisis. This includes the $17 million that came to the school via the CARES Act which all went back to helping their students, as well as the USF United Support Fund that provides direct support to USF students who have been impacted by COVID-19 and to assist in their future.
