Support the Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund seeks to assist Grinnell students by providing financial support intended to prevent students from leaving the college for emergency financial reasons. Students seeking funding from the emergency fund have exhausted all other sources of financial aid and potential funding. Expenses covered by the fund include:

Examples of emergencies to be considered include, but are not limited to:

  • Emergency medical expenses, prescription eyeglasses, or essential dental work
  • Books and other essential academic expenses
  • Travel home for serious illness or death in the immediate family
  • Replacement of essential personal belongings due to fire, theft, or natural disaster
  • Safety Needs
  • Finish Line Project: costs associated with ensuring completion for students identified by the finish line project
  • Grants for noncredit and credit-bearing travel and programs

Seeded by funding from the operational budget, the fund must be sustained by continual contributions from alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends of the college to ensure continued success.
