The Macy's Emergency Scholarship Fund is a joint partnership between LNESC & Macy’s to provide financial resources to deserving students facing economic hardship and immediate monetary need that, if not met, could result in an inability to complete classes or a degree program. Emergency financial need resulting from the following will qualify students for funding such as change in family income/support; loss of job; death of an immediate family member; natural disaster; pending eviction or home foreclosure; burglary; fire. Poor financial choices do not constitute an emergency financial need (e.g. credit card debit, poor use of financial aid funding, personal loans to family or friends).
To be eligible to apply, students must be a resident of Puerto Rico and must be enrolled full-time in an accredited college or university and in good standing. Must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale or the equivalent. Macy’s Emergency Scholarship Funds are non-renewable and applicants cannot be recipients of other LULAC National Educational Service Centers (LNESC) Scholarships at the time of application.
