In light of the pandemic’s impact on the economy and the likelihood that summer
employment will be difficult to secure this year, we will automatically waive your
summer earnings contribution for 2020-2021 and replace it with additional grant
funding from Williams. This means you don’t need to submit any kind of petition to take advantage of this benefit in 2020-2021, and, most importantly, your “Free Summer” will still be available to you if you haven’t already used it. We hope that this change will help alleviate some of the stress during this crisis.
This change will be reflected in your award letter released in May. If you have any
questions, or if you prefer to maintain your summer earnings contribution for this year, please reach out to your financial aid advisor.
