The Julia Buscaglia Student Support Fund was created to help UB nursing students through emergencies that may occur during their time here at the university. These funds offer temporary one-time financial assistance for immediate and current emergency situations. Emergencies involve circumstances which are beyond the student’s control, such as: death in the family, accident, loss of property, loss of income or unanticipated educational expenses.
