Student Emergency Fund


The Student Emergency Fund was established with donor contributions to assist students who have immediate financial needs that directly affect their ability to continue their education at Ship.

The fund is a supplemental financial resource when students are unable to meet immediate and essential expenses due to times of crisis such as illness or death of a family member, medical emergency, or job loss. Students may apply for funds when they have exhausted all other financial resources. Grants from the fund do not need to be repaid. The fund is open to all students with priority given to students with the highest financial need. A maximum amount of $500 may be requested each academic semester.

Since the funds inception in the Fall of 2020, over 83,000 in grants have been awarded to Ship students in need.

Your gift will make an immediate difference in the life of Ship students.
