Apply for emergency funding
The Pay It Forward Emergency Fund was created to assist our social work students who encounter an unforeseen financial emergency that would otherwise prevent them from continuing their education at VCU. Currently enrolled social work students in the B.S.W., M.S.W. and Ph.D. programs may apply if they meet eligibility requirements.

I was older than my peers, but no matter your age, you will receive the same warmth and connections as an undergraduate student. There’s this feeling that you will be OK, even when you’re not feeling OK, because of your classmates and that family connection.”
