EmoryTogether Fund


The EmoryTogether Fund was created to help degree-seeking undergraduate, graduate and professional students who have experienced financial hardships resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Our hope is that this assistance will help students remain focused on pursuing their educational goals. The fund is available to students through June 30 who have critical COVID-19-related financial needs and who meet the following criteria.

Eligibility

From March 11 through June 30, enrolled degree-seeking students with demonstrated and verifiable evidence of financial hardship related to COVID-19 could apply for the EmoryTogether Fund. The fund is now closed.

  • Includes full- or part-time students
  • Includes undergraduate, graduate, or professional students in any of Emory's nine schools
  • Includes students on any form of financial scholarship
  • Includes Emory employee family members receiving courtesy scholarships
  • Excludes non-degree students
  • Excludes Emory employees on courtesy scholarships (Note: Emory employees have access to other hardship funds for support.)

Expenses Eligible for Support

  • Food
  • Rent or mortgage
  • Internet required to access online learning when free options are unavailable
  • Medical expenses related to COVID-19, including medication, copays or care
  • Childcare or elder care when interruption of care interferes with academic work

The Fund Does Not Cover
