With the recent signing of the American Rescue Plan, an additional $40 billion has been allocated to colleges to help them continue to operate safely and help students complete their education.

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) supports colleges by providing financial help to improve their educational equipment. This includes software-based healthcare simulation products that can be accessed for distance learning.

Products such as ALEX Pro, Spark PCS, LapAR, Body Interact and SimVS can be purchased with these funds.

You can now apply for HEERF II funds to support healthcare initiatives at your institution. If you’ve been thinking about adding simulation products to your healthcare program, you may be able to get funding through this grant.

But you must act quickly! The deadline to apply is April 15th, 2021.
