Adler University’s Emergency Response Scholarship Fund has provided grants totaling nearly $1 million to support students experiencing financial hardships during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To date, the University has made 962 awards to students at all three campuses totaling $974,416 in three rounds of funding, in a combination of U.S. and Canadian dollars. The most recent round of awards was made on March 11.
The student relief awards were made possible by generous gifts from our philanthropic community and from U.S. federal government funding. The University also dedicated additional institutional funds to increase the total number of awards available to students.
The Emergency Response Scholarship Fund aims to help students who are struggling with expenses such as food, housing, course materials, and health care during the pandemic.
During each round of funding, Adler University awarded grants to eligible applicants with the greatest level of demonstrated need. Most students received grants in the amount of $1,000 or $2,000. Some students who applied during the March 2021 round of funding received awards ranging from $150-$1,000 to help cover expenses they indicated they had difficulty in meeting.
Adler University is committed to supporting our students who are experiencing financial hardships during the pandemic and we are grateful to all our donors who have helped us in this effort.
