Empire State College Hurricane Sandy Emergency Educational Grant
Thank you for your interest in the Hurricane Sandy Emergency Education Grant program. At this time the college is no longer receiving applications as the Nov. 27 deadline has lapsed.
The Empire State College Foundation and the Student Activity Fee Committee have created a $50,000 emergency educational fund that may allow students applying for a grant to replace books, study materials, tablets/computers or to address other losses or needs that relate directly to being able to continue studies at the college. Applications are due by 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012.
Who can apply?
Students currently enrolled in the September or November study terms and from an identified center or program (Hudson Valley, Long Island, Metropolitan New York, Harry Van Arsdale Labor Studies, Center for Distance Learning, Nursing Program or the School for Graduate Studies) can apply for a grant of up to $500.
Due to limited funding, grants are not available for general disaster relief or personal tragedies. Students seeking additional help should see general disaster relief resources and financial assistance.
Funds will be administered by the deans of each affected center or program, based on recommendations from mentors, student services professionals and other staff. Grants will be made after all applications have been reviewed. Applications must be received no later than 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012.
