Grant Summary

$100,000 to support emergency relief funds for undergraduate students enrolled at the Newark and Camden campuses of Rutgers University. The students enrolled at these two campuses are predominantly first-generation, low-income, and from communities that have disproportionately been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The emergency funds established by these two campuses will help students access basic technology and meet basic needs such as food and housing.
