Many students attending UC Davis have little or no assistance from their families, and may not have any funding source to fall back on in a time of need. We Are Aggie Pride - Student Helping Students Fund was conceived to keep students on track for academic success providing emergency funding to students to cover food, rent and other essential costs not covered by other programs.
Established in 2011, the all-volunteer organization run by a board of 15 student directors and four volunteer staff advisors has raised over $100,000 in funds and already helped more than 50 students stay in school through financial emergencies that range from needing tuition, to buying groceries and paying rent. Awardees go through a strict financial aid screening process to determine whether or not they have other options available to them before they are given support from WAAP’s emergency fund.
