Student Emergency Needs Fund

The College of Chemistry's Student Emergency Needs Fund assists CoC undergrads who are dealing with sudden unexpected financial hardships. Emergency grants of up to $1000 will be made to eligible students. If you need more than $1000, please contact us.

In order to be considered for funding, and to help us better understand student needs, please complete this form. Please provide as much information as possible to help us to make an informed decision, including whether you have already received additional financial aid. If you have, you will probably not qualify for a grant from CoC.

Due to limited resources, requests for emergency funds will be prioritized in the following order:

  1. Food and basic necessities
  2. Rent, utilities, and other household expenses
  3. Technology (laptop, tablets, other technology needs)
  4. Medical expenses
  5. Relocation / transportation expenses

If your request is approved, CoCUSS staff will consult with Financial Aid to determine the impact on your Financial Aid package. You may need to submit a Cost of Attendance Adjustment Request to qualify for further aid. Once we confirm your eligibility, funds will be sent directly to your account via Electronic Funds Transfer. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and students will be notified of the final decision via email.

Please also note that depending on the request, we may need to refer you to campus partners who can better address your needs. Read more on the FASO website.

Please feel free to reach out to your adviser if you would like to discuss your situation.
