Help students in need by making a contribution to the Emory Student Hardship Fund.

The fund aims to raise $5,000 and is about a quarter of the way toward that goal.

“A crisis or catastrophic event has the potential to disrupt or derail a student’s education and expected graduation date. The Emory Student Hardship Fund can provide life-changing assistance, enabling students to overcome difficult setbacks and challenges,” says Jenna Civitello, director of Annual Giving- Donor Engagement in the Office of Annual Giving.

A death in the family, an unexpected medical expense, an immediate threat to personal safety requiring the financial means to move and stay in a safer location — these situations and more can impact the completion of a student’s degree. The Student Hardship Fund supports students by offering timely financial help that can engender peace of mind and academic success.

This fund is entirely supported by charitable donations, and any amount helps meet a student’s time-sensitive need. With $5,000 more, the committee that administers the fund can act quickly to fulfill even more student requests.

“Your support will meet an Emory student’s need in a crisis and help them stay on track to graduate,” Civitello notes.
