Dartmouth to apply for federal coronavirus relief funding

HANOVER, N.H. (AP) Dartmouth College plans to apply for federal aid to help students during the coronavirus pandemic.

The college is eligible for approximately $3.4 million through the coronavirus relief bill. President Philip Hanlon said in a weekly online forum Wednesday that the college will apply for the first portion - $1.7 million - which by law is designated for student aid.

Officials expect to announce on June 29 whether students will return to campus in the fall.
