Emergency Fund Application

Emergency Fund Application

Thanks to a generous, ongoing donation from the Steve Bagdan Charitable Foundation, the George Snow Scholarship Fund will now be able to further help Snow Scholars in need. The objective of the George Snow Scholarship Emergency Fund is to provide a resource for current Snow Scholars, whereby they can apply for financial assistance which will help them manage unexpected hardships and challenges during their educational careers.

Rolling applications will be accepted throughout the year. All eligible applications will be reviewed by the Emergency Fund Review Committee. The Committee will make every effort to act on each application as quickly as possible. The decisions to assist students will be based on established criteria, need and funding available at the time of application.

To determine if you are eligible for emergency funds, please carefully review the program criteria listed below.

**The Emergency Fund is only available to current Snow Scholars**

It is important that an applicant understands the intent of the Emergency Fund before applying for funding.

  • The application should be made only by individuals with verifiable situations.
  • Funding will be based on financial need.

If the Review Committee questions whether a request meets the criteria mentioned above, the underwriters of the Emergency Fund may be contacted to advise the Review Committee on the suitability of the requested funding.

Payment of the grant will be made directly to the company or institution which is the provider of the service. Students may be reimbursed in special situations where the expenses need to be paid immediately up front. This is NOT the preferred method of disbursement and is discouraged.

Examples:

  • A scholar may need emergency medical treatment that required payment at the time the services were rendered.
  • A scholar may have to pay for travel to tend to a dire family emergency or to attend the funeral of an immediate family member (mother/father/brother/sister) and may not have time to apply for a grant from the Fund prior to the travel date.

Presentation of receipts and/or invoices will be required prior to payment of the grant.

Scholar Support Services

The belief that what we, as scholarship providers, offer to our scholars in the form of Scholar Support Services is just as, if not
more valuable, than the financial commitment we make to them. Our Scholars become a part of our family and we do for them what we would all do for our own sons and daughters. The George Snow Scholarship Fund is nationally recognized for its creative and innovative Scholar Support Services. No other scholarship provider does as much for their scholars.

Scholar Support Services currently include:
College Care Packages
College Makeovers
College Physical Program
College Supply Gift Bags
Computers and College Supply Program
Emergency Fund
Guidance from Scholar Support Staff
High School to College: Tools for a Successful Transition

Financial Aid and Student Debt

Navigating the College Financial Aid maze can be a daunting task, even for the most educated and sophisticated individuals. This booklet is designed to give readers an overview of College Financial Aid, and educate students and their families on how to avoid massive student debt after college graduation. Your investment of time in understanding the Financial Aid process will pay huge dividends in the form of increased aid and reduced student debt.
