Looking to give support?

Now more than ever, our students are requesting help due to housing displacement, the loss of a job, food insecurity and technology needs. The Student Support Fund is designed to help students facing unexpected costs and short-term emergencies, such as the sudden loss of a part-time job. If you are thinking of how best to support UA students, please consider giving to the Student Support Fund.
