Student Emergency Aid Society

Hamilton takes seriously its commitment to providing access and opportunity to all students, as demonstrated by our diversity programs and need-blind admission promise. It is also our intention to ensure that all students have equal access to all that Hamilton offers, regardless of their financial background.

Support in an Emergency

Thanks to a generous grant from the Hearst Foundation and gifts from members of the Hamilton community, the Hamilton Student Emergency Aid Society (SEAS) Fund was established to support emergency and/or exceptional needs (i.e., a flight home to be with a sick parent, unmet medical expenses, purchasing a suit for job interviews or travel to a career-related activity) for students whose financial barriers are extraordinary. If the request is approved and the need cannot be met through financial aid or some other means, a grant or loan from the SEAS Fund will be issued to cover the expense.

Students with critical needs should write to seas@hamilton.edu, or contact any member of the SEAS committee. All inquiries, nominations, grants or loans will be handled with discretion and confidentiality.
