Resources for Current Students

This is a time for public health. Amid this global pandemic, we at the Dornsife School of Public Health are dedicated to educating and training our students as the world’s future public health leaders. Your faculty and professional staff are here to support you, and we encourage you to reach out.

A list of services and resources for students both in Philadelphia and around the world is available on our student intranet, Dornsife Dash.

Dornsife Student Emergency Fund: This was established to help full-time Dornsife School of Public Health undergraduate and graduate students who are in need of immediate financial assistance due to unforeseen circumstances or emergency expenses that are related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The spirit of this funding is to support emergency circumstances brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about details and eligibility.
