Applications for Spring 2018 Emergency Grant are NOW CLOSED
RHC Emergency Grant Description
The Roberto Hernández Center is committed to supporting Latina/o student success at UWM. Our experience in serving Latina/o students has proven that more often than not, Latina/o students are also full-time workers, heads of households and parents. In response to the unique needs of our students, the RHC has established the Latino Student Fund, a unique source of emergency funding for currently enrolled Latina/o students facing unexpected expenses that affect their continued pursuit of an undergraduate degree. The overall goal of the Latino Student Fund is to increase the number of Latinas/os successfully graduating from the university.
