We Are Here For You

GW Cares Fund


GW Funds for Corcoran Students: Pat Sheridan ('99) and his company, Modus Create, have provided funds specifically for Corcoran students facing financial emergencies during Spring 2021. Funds are limited. In order to be considered, please submit this form.


GW recognizes that there are times during which a student will need emergency support whether for personal expenses, textbooks or meals. The University offers a number of funds, in the form of loans and grants, to help address emergencies that arise. The program administrators that lead the CARE Team are also currently managing the GW Cares Student Assistance Fund, a donor-supported fund launched in March '20 to support students who are in immediate need of temporary, short-term, financial assistance to help cover unanticipated essential expenses that have occurred as a result of the pandemic. Read more here about additional support through the CARE Team. Based on the type of support you may need, you will be connected to a trained staff member who works with you one-on-one for as long as you may need the help.
