The SU Student Emergency Grant supports students in need of immediate, essential financial help as a result of temporary hardship related to an emergency situation that may result in the student withdrawing from the University. The maximum grant is typically $250.00.
“Your generosity is assisting me in finishing my education. I will be the first in my family to do so and I cannot thank you enough for helping me in my endeavors.”
