GSAPP Emergency Fund

Established and funded by the Dean’s Office, the GSAPP Emergency Fund was initially created in 2020 to support the student community facing hardships resulting from the impact of COVID-19. In order to meet the students’ financial needs during that period, the School expanded the original $250,000 budget to provide a total of $290,743 in emergency aid to 195 students in the 2020-2021 academic year. The Fund was renewed in the 2021-2022 academic year to provide continued support, and a total of $272,366 in emergency aid was awarded to 206 students.

Columbia GSAPP has committed to continued funding through the Emergency Fund in the 2022-2023 academic year to assist students with unexpected financial needs. Application process and deadlines will be communicated at the start of the Fall 2022 semester.

In the University Life series of Student Voices, GSAPP student Ochuko Okor explains why following the Columbia Community Health Compact is so important to the well-being of our entire community. You can hear additional Student Voices on #KeeptheCompact.
