International Student Emergency Fund

The International Student Support Fund, established in October 2006, is designed to help students deal with some of the challenges that arise from being so far away from their home country.

The Fund is an annual program that raises private donations to support the needs of students under the direction of the International Student Services Office in order to help international students afford necessary emergency expenses, such as eye exams, ER visits, or annual tests. Money from the fund may also be used to help purchase much needed supplies, such as snow boots or winter coats.

Students who are in need may apply for the emergency funds through the ISS office. Applications are reviewed by a board of ISS staff members and University administrators.
We wish to increase the Fund in order to help more Marymount international students. Please support the International Student Emergency Fund today! Make your gift securely online now.
