STUDENT TRANSITION & CRISIS RELIEF FUND
ABOUT THE FUND
Our Student Transition & Relief Fund is designed to augment financial aid and provides scholarships to students of color who face challenges that threaten enrollment, employment, academic success, or physical well being. We work hand in hand with universities, organizations, and ministries to identify eligible staff and students.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY:
Sub:Culture’s relief fund has been there for my students in crises. Not only have they received financial support, they’ve also gotten relief and reprieve from some of the many structural stressors that make being Black in college particularly challenging.
— Solome, Campus Minister & Research Assisstant, University of Michigan
Studies show that working-class students face an average net price—the amount of money needed to pay for college after grants and scholarship aid—of over $10,000 at a four-year public college. Students that attend school full time and work 20 hours per week will still only make about $7,000 per year. Our desire at Sub:Culture is to subsidize the cost and fill up what is lacking by providing for unexpected practical situations that arise for these students like financial aid balances, car trouble, medical bills, family emergencies, groceries, room and board, meal plans, class materials, etc.
