Maria Cares Fund

The Maria Cares Student Emergency Fund was established through contributions from faculty and staff to assist Maria College students who encounter an unforeseen financial emergency which would prevent them from continuing their education at Maria. These funds are not intended to be used for routine expenses or as a supplement to educational funding sources. Requests must be urgent in nature. Students may apply for funds when they have exhausted all other resources. Funds do not need to be repaid.

The number of students who can be served by the Student Emergency Fund is subject to the availability of funds. Generally a maximum of two (2) awards will be made to any one student during all combined enrollments at Maria. The fund must be sustained by continual contributions from alumni, parents, faculty, students, staff and friends of the College. The Maria Cares Emergency Hardship Fund, made possible by the generosity of faculty and staff, is coordinated by the Department of Student Affairs and the Department of Advancement.
