Support Emerson

The COVID-19 crisis has caused an increased need for financial support.

  • 75%

    of our undergraduates receive some type of financial aid

  • 38%

    increase in requests for additional aid from admitted students

  • $141K

    in emergency funds distributed to students for books, film, T passes, and other necessities

There is a collaboration and connection at the heart of what it means to be an Emersonian. We believe in supporting one another, and in lifting each other up. We may be individuals but we have a shared respect for those who came before us and a shared sense of responsibility for those who’ll come after us. And right now, part of that responsibility includes giving back—giving back our experience to those who need advice, our words to those who need encouragement, and our resources to those who need our support through the One Emerson Scholarship Fund.

Together, we can show that we are one Emerson.

Why Support Emerson

COVID-19 has touched all industries and every sector of our lives, and Emerson is no exception. Our students and their families are facing new economic realities, reduced incomes, and sudden job losses that will force many to choose between staying in school and keeping their households afloat. Without immediate assistance, many students will not be able to continue their studies. As the global pandemic continues to leave its mark, we are faced with the challenge of ensuring the next generation of Emersonians has the same opportunities as those before them.

Your Impact

It starts with one.

Giving isn’t just about helping current students complete their education and fulfill their potential. It’s about supporting our collective future—the next great leaders in the fields that shape our society and culture. The creativity, passion, expressiveness, inclusivity, inspiration, and action that only Emersonians can bring. Now is not the time to give up on these things. It’s the time to fight for their survival. Because we believe the world needs Emersonians. And right now, Emersonians need us. Each and every one of us.

Please, help us support current students and secure Emerson’s future by making a gift to the One Emerson Scholarship Fund today.
