The Hardship Fund is a program available to assist eligible faculty and staff who are experiencing a personal financial emergency and who have exhausted all other avenues for obtaining assistance. The fund is not a loan. It is designed to address an event or catastrophe that is non-recurring, sudden, unexpected, and critical, such as:
- Family crisis
- Acute illness
- Natural disaster
