Student Emergency Fund

STUDENT EMERGENCY

Emergency Support Fund

The recent pandemic has created serious economic disruptions worldwide. These changes have been especially hard on some of our students. For these students, family support has dwindled and many of the sectors that traditionally hired working students have been severely hit. Recognizing the need, we launched an emergency student support fund before the fall semester and found the demand was enormous.

As we close 2020, we are reaching out to alumni and supporters of the College of Science and inviting you to assist our students facing difficulties. Generous supporters will match the first $10,000 in donations to the College and each department, for a total of $50,000 in matching grants. Please help us make a lasting difference in the lives of our remarkable students.
