SCS Student Emergency Funding Application


Warning message

You must login to view this form.

Generous contributions from parents of current and former SCS students have allowed us to create a fund to offer limited financial support to students for emergencies, supplies and unanticipated events. These funds do not have to be repaid, but we hope that when a beneficiary of this support can pay this forward one day, they will. (Note: Students experiencing hardships due to the novel coronavirus outbreak can also apply for assistance, as of March 2020.)
