Student Basic Needs offers economic support for students experiencing financial insecurity of having stable and predictable income to support a standard living.
Financial insecurity refers to the inability for students to access financial resources to be a successful student, or find the resources to gain financial literacy, such as educational materials to understand what resources are available and where to receive additional support.
We are assisting students experiencing financial insecurity on a case by case basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for resources and support.
