Student Emergency Support Fund

The Student Emergency Support Fund is available to currently enrolled students in good academic standing.  Funds help meet critical, immediate needs that are likely to have a direct impact on the student’s academic success and/or ability to remain enrolled at WP. Support is available, but not limited to, for the following expenses:

  • Assistance with rent, alternate housing accommodations, and/or utilities.
  • Assistance with groceries/food and/or other essential household expenses.
  • Medication(s) and/or other costs related to medical care.
  • Books, computers, and/or other essential academic expenses.

Any other expense that reflects an emergency need for a student, as deemed to be appropriate by the Student Emergency Support Fund Committee, and in keeping with William Paterson University Foundation and William Paterson University policies and procedures.

The Fund is supported by gifts from alumni, friends and members of the WP community. Every contribution will make a meaningful impact upon a student in need and help them realize their dream of becoming a college graduate.  We thank you for your concern, and for demonstrating your Pioneer spirit.
