Donate to the Kent School Student Emergency Fund

Students in the Kent School of Social Work sometimes experience an unforeseen financial crisis. A student may need funds to repair an automobile, to pay medical expenses, to pay a utility bill or any number of other immediate costs that could force a withdrawal or cause a hardship to continue in school. The Kent Student Emergency Fund (KSEF) consists of monies donated by students, faculty and alumni to be utilized for that purpose. Whenever possible, students who receive this financial assistance will repay these funds in order that funds are continuously available to assist students in need.
