Tell Students: Bengal 2 Bengal Support Fund

Buffalo State College is proud to support its current emergency fund with an additional support fund that is open to all Buffalo State students who are in good standing and financial aid eligible. This fund is to help students facing emergency situations in the short term to help them graduate from college in the long term.

The grant (up to $2,000 maximum) cannot be used to cover costs of tuition, fees, credit card debt, cable bills, or legal representation. The emergency must be an unforeseen event and an unexpected need for funds; it cannot be a chronic problem or anticipated expense. The fund may be used for technology hardware or software needed for academic coursework; books or other materials needed for coursework; unforeseen medical expenses for the student or dependent children not covered by insurance; or other emergency needs to ensure the student stays in housing, to pay for utilities, a crisis that requires travel home, protection from domestic violence, or other immediate crisis.

The fund will be administered by the Dean of Students Office. Students can apply once a year (January 1–December 31) while classes are in session. Applications can be made only during the fall or spring semester. At least one Zoom meeting with the student is required as part of the application process.

For more information, please visit the Bengal 2 Bengal Support Fund application form.
