MEDICAL STUDENT FINANCIAL SERVICES
Our full-time medical students often do not have earnings/income or significant savings to rely on during periods of enrollment. For this reason, we strive to connect you with pertinent resources that may supplement financial aid.
- Hunger Free Vermont "words to end the injustice of hunger and malnutrition for all Vermonters" - visit their website for food access information, including the 3SquaresVT program.

- UVM's Food Insecurity Program website promotes the campus Rally Cat food pantry and the Swipe Out Hunger program.
- Vermont's Everyone Eats
- CVOEO, the Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity, offers help with housing/rent, utility costs, and food. CVOEO's safety net programs can help lower other costs of living
so you have more money for food.
- LHOME Initiative: Dana Allison '23 is a great resource for information about insecurity. Watch the recorded Emergency Resources Town Hall from November 2020.
- Vermont Student Assistance Corporation has a "micro grant" program for emergencies. You must meet VSAC's definition of a Vermonter. Contact MedSFS@uvm.edu for the micro grant program details as well as the application/nomination form.
