Student Emergency Funds — School of Public Health and Health Professions

Hayes Hall.

This fund helps UB School of Public Health and Health Professions 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.
