Hawk Emergency Fund

Addressing the needs of students who have had suffered tragic costly losses, UHCL has created the Hawk Emergency Fund. The fund was created to fill the gap and help UHCL students pay for any education-related expenses they may have. Generous donors have contributed more than $16,000 so far to help. As students emerge from their challenges, more requests are received.

University friends who have survived the storm can make a difference to students who have sustained devastating losses by contributing to the Hawk Emergency Fund (select the fund in the drop down menu).
