Student Emergency Fund

On Wednesday, March 11, President Katherine Bergeron announced a series of unprecedented measures to protect the safety of the Connecticut College community in the face of the ongoing global public health crisis surrounding COVID-19. As part of this effort, the Student Emergency Fund has been deployed to address immediate student needs such as travel, housing, lost student wages and more. This fund provides the Dean of the College with the flexibility and resources necessary to address student hardships as they arise.
