At Emory Students Find Funds for Peers in Need

Emory, like a few dozen other colleges, has moved to reduce its students' debt, meeting financial need without loans for students whose families make up to $50,000, and limiting loans for students with family incomes of up to $100,000. But even so, some students struggle financially, especially when faced with emergency situations.

So two Emory seniors, Stephen Ratner and Jordan Stein, started the hardship fund. Students in need apply for a grant of up to $500, and a committee of students, faculty, and staff reviews applications and interviews students, if they would like.
