Dean's Emergency Fund Challenge
The pandemic and turmoil of 2020 has impacted many graduate students, who continue to find themselves with unanticipated financial needs. This fund helps fill the gaps that students may unexpectedly find in their living expenses, such as rent, medical expenses, and food security, and many things we can’t even predict yet. A gift here allows us to provide this extra support to students when they need it most and will help secure Dean Cook’s challenge gift.
