The RBHS Student Emergency Fund provides one-time financial support to students who are experiencing acute financial hardships (such as house fires, burglaries, or medical or family emergencies) and have exhausted all other resources. Emergency funding enables students to navigate life’s obstacles without pausing their studies—so they can complete their degrees and pursue lives of consequence.
Why are donations necessary?
As RBHS students strive to make the world well, sometimes things don’t go as planned. Each year, many students request emergency assistance for tuition, books, and necessities like food and toiletries when they experience unexpected challenges such as the loss of a parent or a job. Donations to the RBHS Student Emergency Fund provide essential financial support to talented pharmacy, medical, dental, health professions, nursing, and public health students for whom a world-class Rutgers education otherwise would be impossible because of unforeseen financial hardship.
