Thank you to the faculty members and advisers who recommended students for the Educational Foundation Emergency Funds this semester. Donations to the annual Employee Giving Campaign go to support the fund, and this semester, the Educational Foundation awarded $3,800 in student aid.
At this time, the Educational Foundation Fall 2012 Emergency Fund has been exhausted. Additional funds will be available in Spring 2013. The Student Emergency Fund is designed to address exceptional financial hardship faced by new and continuing Virginia Western students that could affect their continuing education. Examples of types of emergencies to consider: house fire, medical issues, assistance with temporary housing for a student left homeless, etc. Notices will be sent out in the Daily Bulletin regarding Student Assistance Programs at the beginning of each semester.
Thank you again for supporting Virginia Western's students and the Student Emergency Fund.
