Big Poet Give
Whittier Fund (Area of Greatest Need)
The Whittier Fund is our most popular designation -- a critical source of unrestricted funding that directly and immediately supports the most pressing needs each year. It benefits every student, professor, department, and team.
Student Emergency Fund
Funds will be deployed as soon as practical. Aimed at helping students with unforeseen financial hardships (namely unexpected travel & medical expenses, loss of a job, etc.) that affect their ability to complete their academic year.
Invisible Students Support Fund
The current crisis amplifies existing insecurities that students experience around food & housing. Funding will help create a bridge in time of a great need. Affected students often struggle quietly, not wanting to attract attention.
Counseling Center Fund
Our on-campus mental health professionals have seen increased outreach from students who are trying to cope with challenging circumstances in their lives. Mental health services are provided at no cost and are confidential.
Student Loan Relief Scholarship
Faced with uncertain employment prospects, student loans weigh heavily on the mind of many seniors. This scholarship is applied directly to a student’s account to reduce their senior year federal student loan debt amount.
Poet Forward Scholarship
The average student faces $10,000 in unmet financial need each year. With unbudgeted out-of-pocket expenses, coming up with these funds is an obstacle to many. This scholarship award will augment the student’s existing financial aid.
