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 to assist students with unexpected financial needs. Application process and deadlines are typically published at the start of each Fall semester.
