Guttman has emergency grant funds for students and their families as a quick response to short-term emergencies and hardships. The emergency grant funds enable students to stay in college, rather than take a leave or drop out. Currently enrolled students may apply for funds as a last resort after considering all other options such as savings, family contributions, or loans. Emergency grants do not replace existing financial aid. Students do not have to repay emergency grants. Grants count against the “unmet” need of their financial aid package.
To apply for an emergency grant, please complete this form, review these helpful “how to apply” tips and the information below to ensure you submit a completed application packet. Please expect 2-3 weeks for payments to be made after we receive your completed application. Please email any questions and all required documents to Ms. Samantha Gregoire-James, Administrative Coordinator from Student Engagement, at Samantha.Gregoire-James@guttman.cuny.edu
