Every fall and spring semester, ISSS awards limited emergency grant funds for qualifying continuing undergraduate and graduate students in F-1 and J-1 student status with unexpected financial emergencies. Grant amounts vary according to available funds and demonstrated need. With a limited amount of funds, not all applicants will receive a grant. Additional funding cannot be awarded for ongoing financial situations that have previously received ISSS Emergency Grant funding. The grant is not a scholarship to cover tuition.
- Once a completed application is received, the review of the application and a final decision takes approximately 2 to 4 weeks.
The application is available on the ISSS Financial Support Opportunities webpage.
