Emergency funding is available to students who meet the eligibility criteria outlined below and is made possible by the generous support of George Mason University and donors committed to helping students succeed. Funding from the CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund will also be allocated to eligible students impacted by COVID-19 through this process.

Applications for emergency funding during summer 2020 will be accepted from May 26 through August 7.

Please note – Mason’s emergency funding application is just that – a process for emergency funding. This funding is a last resort for students who need it most and should NOT be considered part of a student’s financial planning for the future.  If a student knows they need continued financial assistance, they are encouraged to work with the Office of Student Financial Aid to discuss all options available to them. Financial Aid can be reached at finaid@gmu.edu.
