The GSA Emergency Grant of up to $500 is designed to assist graduate students in dire financial need due to unforeseen circumstances, such as illness, fire, theft, or family emergency. The GSA Emergency Grant is not a loan, and thus need not be repaid.



Applicants must provide the following information: reason(s) for application; budgetary outline of the applicant, including income and expenses; detailed information concerning the anticipated use of any potential grant by the applicant; any relevant documentation pertaining to the emergency; and a list of other organizations or bodies to which the applicant has made requests for funds, including details of any funds attained or reasons given for the denial of funds.

Applications will be open from February 13th, 2024 and close on February 27th, 2024 at 4pm EST. It is the sole responsibility of applicants to ensure their application is complete. Incomplete applications cannot be considered for a grant or award. The deadline is firm.
