St. John’s Law Student Emergency Fund Application

The St. John’s Law Student Emergency Fund seeks to assist students facing unexpected emergencies that put a strain on their ability to provide for basic needs. Funding is limited, but the committee will work diligently to support students and find solutions to the varied challenges presented. If you have questions about the fund, or about general support at the law school, please contact us at [email protected]. Eligible students should also apply for emergency loan assistance. The Office of Student Financial Services can address questions related to loans. They can be reached at [email protected].

Thank you to AccessLex for their generous contribution of $25,000 to our Student Emergency Fund
