About the vote
Students of the class of 2019 all had the opportunity to vote for their favorite fund through February 28. The fund with the most votes is the focus of the 2019 Class Gift. Any and all gifts towards the 2019 Class Gift will support the chosen fund.
And the winner is... the UAlbany Student Emergency Fund
Do you know a student who is experiencing a financial emergency? Maybe loss of a job means they can’t pay their rent. Or their health insurance won't cover medical bills from a recent trip to the hospital. It could even be that their laptop was damaged and needs to be replaced. Whatever the reason – students can turn to the UAlbany Student Emergency Fund to keep them on track toward graduation. Examples of eligible expenses include rent, utilities, clothing, furniture, medical expenses, back-up child care, back-up transportation, and replacement of stolen items needed for school.
