Equitable Foundation has established an emergency funding program to assist current or past Equitable Excellence℠ Scholarship recipients and Equitable Family Scholarship recipients who are enrolled full-time in and have unexpected financial difficulties which may impact their enrollment in school.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Equitable Excellence℠ Emergency Grant Program must:
Eligible expenses (for student only, not family members):
Distribution of emergency funds will be determined by providing the financial information from the Student Aid Report (found on the FAFSA application), Expected Family Contribution, and school costs.
Eligible students may apply once per application cycle. Students may receive up to one emergency grant for a single eligible expense per application cycle.
All funding is contingent upon the availability of funds. Grants will be made payable directly to the students through Corporate Quick Pay, whenever possible.
Applicants will be notified via email by Scholarship America of their emergency funding application status.
Equitable Foundation reserves the right to review the conditions and procedures of this scholarship program and to make changes at any time including termination of the program.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
