This scholarship is intended to help students facing financial hardship due to an unforeseen dire circumstance. Examples include sudden illness, loss of an immediate family member, major accidents, and natural disasters. Poor financial choices do not constitute an emergency (e.g. credit card debt, poor use of financial aid funding, loans of your need-based aid to friends or family). This scholarship is not intended to supplement a student's financial aid package, and we cannot award funds beyond what a student's aid package allows.

For qualified Math students, the scholarship can be used to cover educational expenses (tuition, fees, room and board, books, etc.) and non-educational expenses (food, utility bills, prescriptions, emergency travel, health insurance, medical bills, etc.) as long as the student has experienced a recent unexpected emergency. Please be sure to itemize any incurred expenses that you would like us to consider for emergency funding.
