CAE Emergency Fund

Emergency funding is available to assist students in responding to unforeseen financial hardships/emergencies that adversely impact their academic success. The mission of the CAE emergency grant is to support BIPOC, DACA and Undocumented, LGBTQ+, first-generation college students who are full-time Newcomb-Tulane College undergraduates. Students must apply for consideration, and if awarded, funds are as one-time grants that generally do not exceed $500.

How do I apply?

Students can make requests through our WaveSync form. CAE will consider applications and award grants on a rolling basis. The questionnaire includes demographic information and a short narrative describing your need. Where applicable, students should upload supporting documents for their application to be fully considered.
