We have reached the maximum number of students that we can support with the CA College Student Support Fund and we are no longer accepting applications or placing names on the waitlist. If you have already submitted your name to the waitlist, we will be in touch with information about when, how, and if additional funding becomes available.

Please note: there is no guarantee that we will be able to provide assistance. We’re working hard to find additional resources from foundations and donations to provide to students through this unprecedented pandemic.

California College Student Grant

To support California college students through these unprecedented times, MAF has established the CA College Student Support Fund. Eligible students will receive a $500 grant to help manage their financial needs – whether that’s class materials, rent, or personal expenses.
