The UB SPPS Student Emergency Fund was created to help students through emergencies that might otherwise disrupt a student’s progress towards earning their UB SPPS degree. This emergency fund is currently maintained through donations from students, faculty/staff, and alumni.
These funds offer temporary one-time financial assistance for immediate and current emergency situations. Emergencies involve circumstances which are beyond the student’s, control such as death in the family, accident, loss of property, loss of income, or unanticipated educational expenses.
Students in need of assistance need to note the following before applying for funding:
Please note that the SPPS Emergency Fund cannot be utilized for tuition assistance.
