CUNY Chancellor's Emergency Fund

In April, CUNY launched the Chancellor’s Emergency Relief Fund to help students facing severe financial hardship from the COVID-19 crisis. This new fund provides students in need across all of CUNY’s campuses—including Macaulay Honors College—with $500 emergency grants.

Macaulay Honors College is participating in this CUNY-wide relief effort by transferring the balance of our modest emergency fund to the Chancellor’s Emergency Relief Fund to ensure that those students most in need will be able to get support as quickly as possible.  As a result, we are no longer accepting emergency fund applications.

Anyone may support the Chancellor’s Emergency Relief Fund  HERE.


If you’re concerned about yourself or someone else, please get in touch with the Student Support Team. The team’s mission is to ensure the safety, wellbeing, and personal growth of all members of the Macaulay community.
