Support our students in need during the
As we grapple with how COVID-19 is impacting our communities, many of you have asked what you can do to help. One of our most important priorities is to ensure that our students are safe and healthy.
It is imperative that our students stay on track to graduate, while also continuing to develop their artistic voices. Our faculty and staff are innovating new approaches to support our students, now, and in the future. However, some of our students are facing hardship and need assistance as a result of this unforeseen challenge.
The CalArts Emergency Fund
The CalArts emergency fund is intended to assist students who require immediate emergency funding that is not related to tuition. These funds provide relief for urgent travel needs, food insecurity, and other extreme situations stemming from the COVID-19 disruption. All current students may apply for up to $500.
Emergency Scholarship Fund
The emergency scholarship fund is open to all continuing students with demonstrated financial need. Students approved for this grant will receive an increase to their institutional funding for the 2020-2021 academic year, renewable each subsequent year of enrollment if their financial need persists.
