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 Emory University students who have critical COVID-19-related financial needs and who meet the eligibility requirements listed below. Awards are intended to assist with eligible expenses but likely will not cover 100 percent of students' needs.


Enrolled, degree-seeking Emory students with demonstrated and verifiable evidence of financial hardship related to COVID-19 may apply to the EmoryTogether Fund. 

  • 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 nondegree students
  • Excludes Emory employees on courtesy scholarships (Note: Emory employees have access to other hardship funds for support.)

Key Dates

Fall 2020 Semester
  • Students may apply to the fund between October 28 and December 15.
  • Students who need assistance over winter break must apply by December 15.

Student Expenses Eligible for Support

The Fund Does Not Cover

Important Considerations

  • Students may request funding only once per semester.
  • For fall 2020 and winter break support, students must apply before December 15.
  • For spring 2021 support, students must apply before March 15.
  • The vast majority of award allocations are between $50 and $500.
  • For the most expedient processing, students will need to provide banking information to Student Financial Services for payment processing via direct deposit; for check payments, students must provide a current mailing address.
