College gets grant to help against virus

From staff reports

Grove City College is using a $210,000 grant provided by the Richard King Mellon Foundation to invest in health and safety measures necessary to protect students, employees and the community against COVID-19.

“This grant is a great help in offsetting unexpected costs incurred over the last six months,” Grove City College President Paul J. McNulty said.

The foundation provided $2.5 million in grants to 12 regional colleges and universities to cover pandemic-related expenses, including COVID-19 testing, personal protective equipment, health care costs, technology costs related to offering online learning or for financial aid for students in need.
