CNS Student Wellness Fund

The purpose of this HornRaiser is to provide support for the CNS Wellness Center so that it can help students in emergency situations, and assist those who need additional support navigating their experience as a student in CNS. Areas of support that undergraduate education (UE) offers through its Wellness Center include a UT Outpost satellite location for food-insecure students, CARE counselors and Non-academic counselor support, and student emergency scholarships.

Your donation ensures that students can have their basic needs met in order to continue to pursue their academic endeavors. It is important that the whole student is nurtured during their time as a student in CNS, and the Wellness Center plays an incredibly crucial role in that. Since this HornRaiser primarily funds student emergency scholarships, we want to provide some context about the direct student impact that previous donations have provided.

The College of Natural Sciences Student Emergency Fund was created to support our students in times of financial hardship due to emergencies. We understand financial help cannot fix all of the unique issues that a student may be facing, but we hope these fund can help students get back on a path of success. Our fundraising goal of $100,000.00 will ensure that we can offer assistance to more applicants in need. 

A student in financial stress due to an emergency may be falling behind academically, develop mental health issues like anxiety and depression, or suffer other medical or safety consequences. When basic necessities are out of reach, students are less likely to become Longhorn leaders who give back to the global community. With rising housing prices and inflation, we're seeing significantly more requests for assistance with financial emergencies. You can help by donating today! 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go to a CNS student in need.

We have committed to raising $100,000.00 to fund an average of 200 life-changing scholarships for deserving CNS students in the next year. Dean Vanden Bout has pledged to match up to $50,000.00 in donations! We invite you to donate today and share our campaign with your network. Only with your help can we secure the future of tomorrow's Longhorn leaders in the Natural Sciences.
