    The Graduate Student Emergency Fund

    The Graduate Student Emergency Fund is designed to provide assistance to graduate students facing unexpected challenges.  Because graduate students are typically at a different stage of life than our undergraduate students, their needs are also often quite different.  Whether a spouse is suddenly out of work, childcare no longer available or some other barrier to their academic career has emerged, the Graduate Student Emergency Fund exists solely to support the Carolina graduate students during their times of crisis.  For many, that time is now.
