Seeds of Hope Fund

The Seeds of Hope Fund was established to support emergency financial needs of students in conjunction with the Student Emergency Fund, Student Assistance Fund, and the Student Government Association Fund on a quick and immediate basis. It’s designed to assist students with an unusual financial emergency shortfall to pay for educational or personal expenses such as, but not limited to, medical, family needs, and occupational requirements such as certification examinations, tools, and uniforms. This is an outright gift and does not have to be repaid.
