This fund helps UB nursing students through emergencies that may occur during their time here at the university.
Emergencies involve circumstances which are beyond the student’s control, including a death in the family, accident, loss of property, loss of income or unanticipated educational expenses. These funds offer temporary one-time financial assistance for immediate and current emergency situations.
Emergency funds do not replace financial aid, nor should they be considered a means to finance a student’s education. Students who apply for emergency funds are typically asked to outline their specific need, how the fund would alleviate that need, and how the need will be resolved and/or avoided in future semesters. Students may also be asked to document the expenditure of the funds.
