Undergraduate Student Microgrant


The University of Massachusetts Amherst Student Care and Emergency Grant Program and the Foster Student Success Fund Grant (Microgrant) provides emergency Microgrants to matriculated undergraduate students for unexpected financial emergencies, hardship, and/or unforeseen personal/family emergencies.


The Dean of Students Office staff administratively manage the program while the Microgrant applications are reviewed by a committee comprised of UMass staff members. A student may only receive one Microgrant per academic year. The maximum amount for a grant is $500.


This grant fund is made possible by generous donations to the Student Care and Emergency Response Fund and Foster Student Success Fund
