The Lighten the Load Fund was established in 2020 to provide emergency financial hardship support to students enrolled in the CSU College of Health and Human Sciences. From a medical emergency to an unexpected living or transportation expense, the Lighten the Load Fund supports CHHS students with an unforeseen personal financial crisis that impedes students’ ability to pursue their degree.
If you are a College of Health and Human Sciences student experiencing an unforeseen and emergency need for financial resources, please complete this application.
Emergency funds applications will be available throughout the Fall 2022 semester to current CHHS students. The application is open from August 22 to December 2, 2022. Decisions about emergency fund grants will be emailed to students within two weeks of the application submission.
Please note that the Lighten the Load emergency funds will not cover tuition, school fees, or other planned expenses. For additional support regarding non-emergency financial support, please see the list of community resources available to Colorado State University students.
The Lighten the Load Fund is available to current CHHS students. Please first sign in to Office365 in order to access the application.
