CUNY Launches Chancellor’s Emergency Relief Fund To Provide Urgent Aid To CUNY Students In Need Amid Covid-19 Crisis

Priority: Informational

The City University of New York announced the launch of a Chancellor’s Emergency Relief Fund to help students facing financial hardship during the COVID-19 crisis. With initial support from the Carroll and Milton Petrie Foundation and the James and Judith K. Dimon Foundation, the Chancellor’s Emergency Relief Fund will distribute grants of $500 each to thousands of CUNY students the week of April 20. Recipients will be chosen by lottery from a group of about 14,000 students who have been identified as meeting financial-need and academic criteria. With additional funding, the University will seek to deploy emergency grants to more students in the coming months.
