The Association of Latino Alumni is proud to announce the launch of our ALA Emergency Fund. Once the Emergency Fund is funded, the Association of Latino Alumni will offer emergency grants to students facing an immediate financial crisis, with a preference for Latino undergraduates. Applicants must face an immediate crisis that is impeding their studies and progress towards timely receipt of a degree. Students must be enrolled in the University and be in good academic standing to qualify. ALA, with input from Penn Student Financial Services, will determine the grants.
The fund will begin distributing grants once an initial $10,000 has been raised. Help us in this effort by donating online or writing a check to the “Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania,” note: “ALA Emergency Fund.” Send checks to Marla Brown, Sweeten Alumni House, 3533 Locust Walk, Philadelphia, PA 19104.
