UPDATE AS OF 10/19/2020:
As of 10/19/2020, all Fall 2020 Hardship Grant funds have been disbursed. As a result, we will not be awarding any additional grant funds for the remainder of the Fall 2020 semester.
We will continue to accept Financial Hardship Grant applications and hold them for review in January when our Spring 20201 Hardship Grant process opens.
The CIIS Financial Hardship Grant provides direct and immediate financial assistance for students who have been impacted by
disasters, medical crises, other personal hardships and tragedies, or significant reduction to income which require a measure of
temporary financial relief. CIIS’s Financial Hardship Grant is not intended to provide long‐term, continuous relief. Students are
eligible to receive the grant only once in an academic year.
Students must be actively enrolled at CIIS during the term that they apply for the Financial Hardship Grant. The Financial Hardship
Grant will be reviewed by a committee composed of representatives from the following offices: Academic Affairs, Financial Aid,
Office of Diversity & Inclusion, and Student Affairs. Information disclosed will be kept confidential. The Financial Hardship Grant will
have a maximum request of $1500 per student.
Please email your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Note that a
finite amount of money will be allocated for the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters and distributed until the funding is exhausted.
