Student Success and Support Emergency Fund

The College of Health Professions Student Success and Support Emergency Fund was created to assist CHP students who encounter an unforeseen financial emergency that would otherwise prevent them from continuing their education here at VCU. Specifically, this emergency fund provides our students with financial support when faced with an unexpected, unforeseen, and unavoidable emergency expense that may be related to an accident, illness, death of a family member, fire damage, or need for temporary housing. We acknowledge that students are often faced with life altering circumstances that have the potential to derail successful academic progression. Our goal is to ensure our students have access to emergency resources during times of need - enabling them to stay in school and make progress towards their degree.
