Emergency Fund

Financial assistance is available for current students, both undergraduate and graduate, who encounter a sudden and unexpected emergency. Examples of an emergency need include:

  • Medications and additional costs related to medical care
  • Books and other essential academic expenses
  • Safety needs (i.e. changing a lock)
  • Replacement of essential personal belongings due to fire, theft, or natural disaster
  • Travel costs related to a death or illness in the immediate family


Your generosity is assisting me in finishing my education. I will be the first in my family to do so and I cannot thank you enough for helping me in my endeavors.
