Students are the heart of Emory and one of the hallmarks of the University is that the Emory student experience extends well beyond the classroom. As a result, there are times when financial aid or work study cannot cover a student’s expenses. When a student experiences unexpected hardship or needs emergency assistance, your gift can mean the difference between success and failure. Here are a few programs where you can support the “whole student” by helping them overcome these obstacles so they can focus on what matters—unencumbered by financial worries.
For Emory Day of Giving, we are highlighting these giving opportunities:
The Emory Together Fund provides emergency financial assistance to students, faculty, and staff of Emory University. By helping meet their most pressing and immediate needs, the Emory Together Fund has helped members of the Emory community overcome the difficult obstacles presented by COVID-19.
Gifts to the Food Security Fund help fight food insecurity directly within the Emory student community by allowing students experiencing food insecurity to purchase their own food during breaks, while living off campus, and during remote learning. All Emory students, regardless of school affiliation, are eligible to apply for assistance through Student Case Management and Intervention Services.
The Student Hardship Fund provides life-changing financial assistance to Emory students in need due to a crisis or catastrophic event. A committee of student leaders and representatives from the Office of Financial Aid grant financial awards through a rolling application process.
The General University Scholarship Fund gives Emory University the ability to create a class that includes the best students regardless of income.
