CBB for Life's mission is to support the long-term sustainability and success of the San Diego State University Community-Based Block (CBB) program. Inherent in that mission is the support of CBB students and alumni, and the social justice and mental health initiatives they carry out.

CBB for Life established the Resiliency Grant to assist students with unexpected or emergency short-term expenses. The maximum award is $599 per academic year, funds permitting.

Examples of unexpected or emergency situations include:

  • Job loss

  • Help with unexpected car repairs

  • Emergency medical expenses not covered by insurance

  • Computer repair

CBB for Life Resiliency Fund Grant requirements:

  1. Be a current CBB student (must be making academic progress).

Please Note:
The purpose of the Resiliency Grant is to assist students with unexpected or emergency short-term expenses.
