College of Global Futures Student Emergency Fund

College of Global Futures Student Emergency Fund

The College of Global Futures has established the emergency fund for degree-seeking students in the college who need financial assistance in order to stay on track towards degree completion. These funds are for global futures students who demonstrate academic ability and progress, but due to recent (last 60 days) unforeseen financial circumstances, find themselves in a situation where it is difficult to stay enrolled, focused on their studies, and pay their cost of attendance.


The funds assist students in meeting costs associated with tuition/fees, books, and living expenses. Award amounts may vary up to a maximum of $500, based on availability of funds as well as individual need. Additionally, awards are not guaranteed and are subject to individual need, documentation, and availability of funds.


In order to be eligible to apply for funds, you must:

  • Be enrolled in a College of Global Futures degree program.
  • Have an unforeseen circumstance that has prompted the request.
  • Demonstrate financial need.

Students also typically:

  • Have a cumulative ASU GPA of 2.0 or higher (if an undergraduate student) or have a documented academic warning or probation agreement in place.
  • Have a cumulative ASU GPA of 3.0 or higher (if a graduate student) or have a documented probation agreement in place.

As funds are limited, not all students who apply will receive funding.
