Mission & Application Process
The Benevolence Fund has been created to build a community that provides a way to come alongside students in the midst of extreme and immediate hardship by providing immediate assistance in a crisis situation. The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology’s benevolence fund may provide short-term assistance to active students for the basic immediate necessities such as food, clothing, housing, utilities, transportation, and medical assistance including psychological counseling in a crisis situation.
