WASHINGTON, D.C.— Lucky Jefferson has created the Lucky Jefferson Student Relief Fund to support students affected by COVID-19.
The Lucky Jefferson Student Relief Fund will award aid between $25 and $100 to students who live in the Boston, Pennsylvania, New York, Washington, D.C., and Maryland area whose well-being and lives are being adversely impacted by COVID-19.
With students being forced out of dorms and off-campus and experiencing a shift in their education resulting in courses being taken online, without much technological preparation, students are now at risk of:
- losing scholarships
- access to resources to support their overall well-being and studies
- experiencing temporary or permanent homelessness
- forfeiting their college education altogether
The Lucky Jefferson Student Relief Fund will begin awarding aid and open applications on March 23 to affected students. The Lucky Jefferson Student Relief Fund will remain open until May 1, 2020, or as funds are available.
"It's important that we help others outside of simply sharing and promoting their work. Lucky Jefferson wants to make sure people can continue being successful despite what's happening around us," said NaBeela Washington, Founder of Lucky Jefferson.
The Lucky Jefferson Student Relief Fund would be available to provide aid for the following:
- Moving/Storage Expenses
- Tech/Software Needed To Go Remote
- Costs Incurred From Classes That Are Canceled Or Inaccessible
- Loss Of Income From Work-study & TA Programs
Applications will be made available on Monday, March 23 and are expected to close on May 1.
