JUST FOR STUDENTS

HARDSHIP FUND
The Stony Brook Hardship Fund, which was established through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), can help Stony Brook University community members affected by a sudden and unexpected event. Historically, this Fund has only been available to faculty and staff. However, as a result of Super Storm Sandy, Stony Brook University President, Dr Stanely asked for the Fund to be opened to students in need as well.
Students who are enrolled in the university in the Fall 2012 and have experienced a financial hardship as a result of Sandy, are eligible for up to the maximum award of $300.
