College of Chemistry Student Emergency Needs Fund

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the College of Chemistry and the Undergraduate Student Services (CoCUSS) team would like to help lower barriers to your success brought on by the COVID-19 crisis. We have created a Student Emergency Needs Fund to assist CoC undergrads who are dealing with sudden unexpected financial hardships.
