Undergraduate Student Microgrant

The University of Massachusetts Amherst Student Care and Emergency Grant Program and the Foster Student Success Fund Grant (Microgrant) provide small grants to matriculated undergraduate students for unexpected financial 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 standard amount for a grant is $500.

Microgrants are made possible by generous donations to the Student Care and Emergency Response Fund and Foster Student Success Fund
