    UNC Hospitals Volunteer Association Emergency Assistance

    The UNC Hospitals Volunteer Association has generously provided emergency assistance funds to help UNC Allied Health Students. The Department of Allied Health Sciences has a faculty committee to assist students with emergency needs and special financial requests related to education that arise during school. Please talk to any member of the committee and note that there are representatives from each Division of Allied Health Sciences.

    Students are eligible for the UNCH Auxiliary emergency grant funds for reasons of a severe financial hardship for which the student has an immediate need for financial assistance. There may be occasions when emergency circumstances, defined as unforeseen, unplanned and unavoidable events, demand immediate attention and require a student to secure funds on short notice. Examples include a student’s medical emergency, threatened foreclosure or eviction from a primary residence or inability to provide basic necessities (food, clothing, medicine).

    The financial aid committee members are as follows:

    Laine Stewart – - CLS

    Linn Wakeford – -OS

    Judy Schmidt - - CRMH

    Lisa Johnston – - PT

    Lauren Noble – - RS

    Lisa Domby – -SLP
