In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Western Michigan University Cooley Law School has established a Student Relief Fund. The WMU-Cooley Student Relief Fund has been developed to provide financial support to current students who are facing an array of challenges during the current crisis.
With initial support from alumni and friends of WMU-Cooley, the fund has raised $10,000 toward a goal of $35,000. Many of the law school's students have already applied to receive financial assistance. Those needing assistance have lost jobs, are experiencing dramatic cuts in pay, have medical expenses, are faced with housing issues, or have educational expenses that are outpacing their capacity to fund.
“I am proud that many of our alumni and friends have stepped up to help our current students,” said WMU-Cooley President and Dean James McGrath. “I am hopeful that members of the greater community and legal profession have capacity to step forward in the coming weeks to show support.”
Gifts of any size can be made to the WMU-Cooley COVID-19 Student Relief Fund. Give online or by check by clicking on the button below.
