New support fund for OSU students who have experienced sexual violence

A Sexual Violence Assistance Fund has been created by the Office of Student Life in partnership with Undergraduate Student Government (USG).  It provides financial assistance for students who have experienced sexual assault, intimate partner abuse and/or stalking.

Current Ohio State students can apply for up to $500 to assist with expenses such as replacement items, uncovered and documented medical expenses, emergency housing and other associated costs.

This fund was created through the initiative of USG and the student group Women and Allies Rising in Resistance (WARR), in partnership with the Office of Student Life. For more information and to learn how to apply, contact the Student Wellness Center’s Sexual Violence and Education Support team by going to their website or calling 614-292-4527
