Student Emergency Fund/Virtual Food Bank

Chicago-Kent is committed to meeting the needs of our students, and we want to do what we can to offer support and emergency assistance to help you in these historic circumstances. Toward that end, we have established an emergency fund - funded by contributions from faculty, staff, and alumni - to provide resources to support those of you experiencing food insecurity or other financial burdens resulting from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. We encourage you to ask for what you need and ask you to understand that our ability to meet students’ needs depends on everyone asking only for what they need.

Assistance is available to any currently-enrolled Chicago-Kent student. We will verify enrollment, but we do not have any financial eligibility requirements. By completing this form, you will sign a statement acknowledging your need for food and/or financial assistance.

The fund consists of two parts:

Virtual Food Bank
The Virtual Food Bank allows you to obtain a $50 grocery gift card.
