Students can stay in school and on track to graduate

A great number of Stony Brook students come from backgrounds that are at higher risk of suffering financial and societal hardships. Stony Brook’s Student Emergency Support Fund provides financial support and resources to students who are experiencing a crisis -- such as sudden homelessness, scarcity of food, lack of access to technology -- that impacts their ability to continue their education.

Contributions to the Student Emergency Support Fund gives these students a chance to get back on their feet so they can continue to work toward attaining their degree.
