The Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund provides support for SUNY Delhi students who encounter unforeseen financial emergencies or catastrophic events. The goal of this fund is to help students during times of extraordinary need. Emergencies may trigger a need for support for things such as housing/rent, temporary loss of income, clothing, medical expenses, transportation, or obtaining items necessary for a student to complete their studies.

The following form can be completed by either the student or a faculty/staff member.  For faculty/staff who may be completing the form on behalf of the student, please complete the required funding information to the best of your ability.  A member of the Student Emergency Fund committee may follow up with additional questions/clarification based on the information provided.

  • Emergency medications and other costs related to emergency medical care
  • Assistance with replacement of essential personal belongings due to fire, theft, or natural disaster
  • Travel costs related to a death or illness in the immediate family (parent, grandparent, sibling, spouse, or children)
  • Emergency assistance related to living expenses

  • Study abroad costs
  • Non-essential utilities (e.g., cable), household, or furniture costs not related to damage or theft
  • Parking tickets and other fines
  • Costs for entertainment, recreation, non-emergency travel
  • Expenses that could be reasonably anticipated
