Student Crisis Fund

When students encounter unpredictable financial hardship, such as an accident, illness, natural disaster or other unforeseen events, their success as a student is threatened. The new Student Crisis Fund was developed to better respond to our students’ needs in these situations and provide one-time grants. Average awards range from $100-$300, with a maximum of $1,000 for extreme situations. In the event of a qualifying emergency, funds can be used toward essential academic needs (books and supplies), replacement of lost or damaged items, basic needs such as utilities or childcare, short-term housing or transportation.

Unlike other emergency funds (see below), the Student Crisis Fund does not assist with tuition or fees, on-campus room and board charges or food. Join us in supporting any–or all–of our existing emergency programs and help us assist our students when they need it the most.

Support one or more of our Emergency Funds:
