For Rackham Students with Emergency Financial Needs

Attending graduate school is a significant investment of time and money. Some students leave full-time employment to pursue a graduate degree and find themselves balancing the costs of graduate school and daily living on a fixed income. What do you do in the event of an emergency or if you encounter an unforeseen expense?

Did you know that both the Rackham Graduate School and the larger university community have set aside funds to help see students through financial hardship? These funds are designed to ensure that an unforeseen crisis in your immediate family or other unanticipated events don’t threaten the successful completion of your degree.
