A student’s financial circumstances can change suddenly. Too often, these obstacles prove challenging, causing students to experience stressful hardship. When such circumstances befall a student and all sources of financial assistance are exhausted, the Friends of USciences (“Friends”) is here to offer assistance through the “Student Relief Fund.” All students with a valid crisis are eligible to apply for assistance; however due to funding limitations the Friends of USciences cannot guarantee all applicants who apply will receive funding; the maximum award of $500.00 per application academic year is possible.
