Global Emergency Relief Grant

In response to global crises, including warfare and natural disasters, TMAPS is initiating a Global Emergency Relief Grant. This grant aims to assist current and former TMAPS members affected by these events. The nature of these crises can range from military occupations to life-threatening situations such as supply shortages, injuries, race-based violence, religious persecution, and family separation or loss. The grant is designed to offer broad eligibility to members facing various forms of hardship.

Despite the existing TMAPS Emergency Grant, the unique circumstances of ongoing global conflicts and wars have led to several students altering their education plans, including dropping courses. This fund seeks to support those who do not qualify under the standard Emergency Fund criteria. With an initial allocation of $5,000.00, individual grants can amount up to $500. This initiative also aims to establish a framework for addressing future conflicts.

Limitations of Current Financial Aid:

Noting that existing TMAPS financial aid programs do not address emergency needs arising from war situations. Recognizing that students who have dropped classes or altered education plans are ineligible for current TMAPS financial aid.

Eligibility Criteria:

Recent (until the previous academic year) or current TMAPS members* who indicate being affected by crises as outlined above are eligible. 

A TMAPS member is any student who is a distance education, continuing education, part-time student, or a student having taken any Chang School course (undergraduate, graduate, or international student). 

Application Process:

Please apply using the form below.

The application will primarily follow the TMAPS Emergency Grant criteria.

Required information: Email, student number, year of TMAPS membership, country of citizenship, country of residency (temporary or permanent), indication of need, and indication of impact by the crisis.
