CARES Act/Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund

Reed College has received funding through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) authorized by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to provide direct emergency payments to eligible students (FAFSA filers) with expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus pandemic. Eligible students who do not qualify for an automatic payment (i.e, do not receive Federal Pell or need-based Reed grant) who have unexpected expenses related to campus disruptions due to COVID-19 may apply for funding by completing this form.

Reed Emergency Fund

The Reed Emergency fund is a limited resource available to students who have short-term or one-time needs that are deemed immediately vital to the personal health or academic well-being of the student. Priority is given to students with financial need who have exhausted all forms of financial aid. Complete this form to request funding.

Reed Emergency Loan

The Reed Emergency Loan serves students who are experiencing financial hardship and are unable to receive assistance from their parents or family members on an emergency short-term basis; typically limited to $500 or less and must be repaid by the end of the semester in which the loan is made. Students should contact Sara Rosenberger in the Business Office for more details.
