Today is #GivingTuesday! This year at CHHS, we are asking for funds designated to an area of great need: the Student Emergency Assistance Fund.

This year, CHHS students are facing more obstacles than ever in the pursuit of their higher education dreams. Dozens of students have applied for emergency financial support for things like paying utility bills, providing food for themselves and their families, and purchasing the necessary technology to continue their classes remotely.

To make a gift that will directly help students in need, visit https://chhs.gmu.edu/give. Thank you, and happy #GivingTuesday!

So proud of Alexandra Jones, a student in #MasonSocialWork and scholarship recipient. You could receive a scholarship for unpaid internships too! Apply by Dec. 1 in handshake!

Alexandra Jones, a Social Work major in George Mason University's College of Health and Human Services, applied for and received the Scholarship for Unpaid Internships last year and it helped fund her living and travel expenses for an unpaid internship that was crucial to her future career plans and her academic degree. Her story is inspiring and we’re so proud of her!

"Not only did the scholarship assist with my financial burdens, but I also had enough money to fund transportation to my internship, books, and to pay for my medicine. Receiving this scholarship ignited hope in me. Attending GMU has been the best decision I have ever made. GMU is full of diversity, excellent staff, and professors. All the challenges and struggles were so worth it. I love my school. I will be the first person in my family to receive my Masters."

We are accepting applications for spring until December 1. Apply in Handshake today!
