Ferris Relief Fund
The purpose of the Ferris Relief Fund is to promote student retention and academic success. Funding is intended to provide short-term assistance to help address a student’s unmet financial need when other viable options have been exhausted and/or urgent circumstances arise. Students who are determined to not have any unmet financial need are not eligible for this funding, however changes in a student’s circumstances may warrant a re-evaluation of their expected cost of attendance thereby creating the possibility for an allocation of funds. The average award has been approximately $1,059.
We seek to maximize the impact of the fund by helping as many students as possible and generally don’t make larger awards.
If you are in need of funding and want to be considered for aid from the Ferris Relief Fund, please email your request to either the Dean of Student Life or the Director of Student Conduct.
