WGS Emergency Fund Scholarship

 

 

SAN FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY

WOMEN AND GENDER STUDIES

In these turbulent times, it is imperative to provide

all students a reliable space to learn and explore —

where they are fully supported and encouraged.

All faculty and staff in Women and Gender Studies (WGS)

at San Francisco State University dedicate themselves

to this important mission.

Join us in this mission by making a gift.

For the past two years, the Women and Gender Studies’

Emergency Fund Scholarship has helped 23 different

students dealing with difficult circumstances. The WGS

Emergency Fund has covered needs like child support

costs for a student whose abusive partner could no longer

be relied upon for child care and giving students access

to therapy to address unexpected traumas (like a friend

murdered by gun violence). However, this is the final

year the department can cover WGS emergency funds —

and we need your support.

Help keep this essential scholarship alive by

making a gift — on average, just $200 will solve a

student’s emergency — allowing them to continue

their coursework.
