Why this program is important
Each year, Rutgers School of Nursing sees some of its students struggle to continue their education after experiencing an emergency or catastrophic event. The School of Nursing Student Emergency Fund was created to support students when unforeseen financial emergencies arise. The fund assists students and their families suffering critical setbacks in housing, income, healthcare access, food security, and more.
What your donation makes possible
The need for support among Rutgers nursing students is immediate and great. Students have indicated that food and rent are their most pressing concerns, as many have reduced opportunities to work since the pandemic began. By making a gift to the School of Nursing Student Emergency Fund, donors will be making a long-term impact on the lives and academic progress of nursing students.
Why your generosity is vital to Academic Excellence
We are committed to driving inclusive access for students to Rutgers with an aspiration to be the national model for outstanding academic programs, social mobility and educational equity with purposeful and timely degree completion, career preparation and lifelong learning.
