About the UMD Student Crisis Fund

Students' stories continuously remind us of the importance of the UMD Student Crisis Fund. Every time we read these compelling stories, we realize how significant the Crisis Fund has been over the years and its role in ensuring that we support all members of our student body in their time of need.

"Thank you so much for your assistance during my financial hardship. Your help from the University of Maryland Student Crisis Fund has kept me from being evicted and therefore allowed me to remain enrolled for the fall semester. Now I can continue to make progress towards becoming an environmental scientist in order to contribute towards understanding and fighting climate change.

Your help will never be forgotten and I will donate as soon as my situation allows in order to help other students in need."
