Member Emergency Support Fund Spring 2023

UConn-AAUP Member Emergency Support Fund
Spring, 2023

UConn-AAUP has established a Member Emergency Support Fund to assist our members with unexpected expenses most impacted by rising inflation to provide some relief for extra expenses related to childcare, eldercare, housing, health care or to help off-set a loss of income.

Therefore, this semester we are once again offering financial support to our members. To prioritize support for those in greatest need, funds will be distributed on a point system based on annual salary and length of service.

Salary Points Membership Points

$45,000-$59,999 2 2-6 years 2
$60,000-$90,000 1 6+ years 3

Funds will be distributed in checks from UConn-AAUP to each faculty member. The amount provided per member will be between $300 and $500.
