What is the Unconditional Love Fund?

The Unconditional Love Fund was created to provide Michigan State University students with flexible assistance in a timely manner to address extraordinary and unexpected financial hardships associated with their sexual and/or gender identity. Funds are available to students who apply to The Gender and Sexuality Campus Center who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses due to temporary hardship related to unforeseen or emergency situations. This funding does not need to be repaid. Financial awards are made available to assist students with expenses that support their health, wellness, and safety.

To apply for the Unconditional Love Fund, please visit the GSCC website

  • Students may apply once per semester (with a maximum of twice per academic year). 
  • Students may request up to $500.00 per application. 
  • Applications take seven business days to process. 
  • Grants are paid through the student account with the Office of Financial Aid. Applicants should be aware that the grant must be reported to the Office for Financial Aid and may affect a student’s financial aid package.
  • In order to receive assistance, you may be asked to provide documentation of your claim/need.  This could include bills, receipts, invoices etc.
