Student Emergency Funding

At Bates College, we recognize that unforeseen circumstances impact student success and well-being. In the case of a sudden, temporary, and/or unexpected financial emergency, students can apply to receive Bates College student emergency funding. Expenses potentially covered include travel costs related to a family emergency, urgent medical expenses that are uncovered by insurance, the replacement of an essential personal item, etc.

Students who apply to receive emergency funding may be asked to visit the Office of Student Financial Services to review their eligibility to receive financial aid. Emergency funding requests are reviewed weekly by the Senior Associate Dean of Students for Student Support and Community Standards.

For more information about the Bates Student Emergency Fund and for application instructions please contact the Administrative Coordinator for Student Affairs at, 207-786-6220, or visit Lane Hall 103.
