Emergency Aid

To provide extra care to currently enrolled graduate and professional students, limited emergency funds are available to support those who are unable to meet essential expenses due to temporary hardship resulting from an unexpected situation. Graduate and professional emergency aid is designed to assist students with an urgent and specific financial need that may negatively impact progress in their current program.
