Bison Aid Fund
Chapel Hall 102
Recognizing that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of our students and for many students, the pandemic has exacerbated existing challenges and even created new ones, the Bison Aid Fund has been established through the generosity of alumni, friends of the University, and both the Student Body Government and Graduate Student Association.
The goal of the Bison Aid fund is to provide currently enrolled Gallaudet University students with limited supplemental emergency financial assistance to meet immediate, essential expenses because of hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is expected that the student needing financial assistance will have first exhausted their immediate support network (i.e., family, friends) prior to requesting financial assistance.
Any financial assistance given is not considered a loan and does not require repayment, although it might be subject to tax and may need to be reported in your financial aid award.
Requests for financial assistance are being considered primarily for COVID-19 related expenses for our current students and while the University continues remote-learning. We will continue to accept requests for financial assistance until the fund runs out or when the University returns to face to face learning, whichever occurs first.
To be eligible for financial assistance, students must meet the following criteria:
