Student Assistance Fund
In 2008, our inaugural Parents Council recognized a need within the Fellows community. Some students lacked money to purchase textbooks, others to purchase essentials like a winter coat. They established the University Fellows Student Assistance Fund, which assists Fellows with substantial financial need. In recent years, the fund has been used not only for textbooks but also for fuel and health insurance. Some of our neediest students work more than one part-time job, commute from home to save money on living expenses, and still manage to successfully carry a full academic load. For these students, the Assistance Fund makes college a bit more manageable.
