CHS Student Relief Funds

Graduate/professional students:

The UK College of Health Sciences Graduate and Professional Student Relief Fund provides financial assistance to students who are facing significant hardship due to unforeseen financial emergencies. Financial emergencies can include, but are not limited to, an accident, illness, death of a family member, natural disaster, or other unforeseen circumstance that would negatively impact the student’s ability to continue their education. To help alleviate short-term financial needs, funds will be awarded as grants although students benefitting from this gift are encouraged to share their gratitude by considering ways to “pay it forward” in the future, perhaps by donating to the endowment funding their grant.
Undergraduate students:

Ethan Earlywine was a UK College of Health Sciences student in clinical leadership management and had an ongoing goal in life to help others.  He was passionate about healthcare and was dedicated to the field both in and out of the classroom.  While in school, Ethan worked at Georgetown Community Hospital which allowed him to complement his academic education with his passion for helping others. During his time at UK, he made many friends and left his mark on the University and the Department. To remember his selflessness and passion for helping others his family, friends, Georgetown Community Hospital, and the University of Kentucky established the Ethan Earlywine Student Emergency Fund in his memory. The Ethan Earlywine Student Emergency Fund provides financial assistance to University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences Department of Clinical Sciences students who are in danger from withdrawing from a class or program due to unanticipated, temporary financial hardships resulting from emergency or crisis situations. Funds will be awarded as grants to help alleviate short-term financial needs.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and can be submitted here.
