University of Memphis COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund

In response to recent events, the UofM is working everyday to meet student needs and has taken immediate action to ensure now more than ever that this remains a top priority to support our students. As students adjust to a remote learning environment and their new "normal", many cannot afford unexpected expenses such as affordable housing, food, and other essential needs. That's why The Dr. Rosie Bingham Student Emergency Fund was specifically established to ease the financial burden of Tiger students.  

 

 

This fund honors Dr. Bingham’s service and recognizes her commitment to caring for UofM students by providing up to $500 to a qualifying student in need. Your gift can provide struggling students with funds for temporary housing, utility bills, groceries and more.The University of Memphis Community always has and always will pull together and rise to any challenge.
