Swift Cares Fund
The Swift Cares Fund was established by the Divinity Student Association in 2014 and was made possible through profits earned by the student-run, Divinity School Coffee Shop, Grounds of Being. The purpose of the fund is to support current Divinity School students who are experiencing financial hardship due to a major life crisis. Though these funds should be seen as something provided to students from students, for privacy reasons, applications are administrated entirely through the Dean of Students office.
This Swift Cares Fund is not associated with the financial aid application. Financial aid applicants who have special circumstances that relate directly to the financial aid process should contact the Dean of Students.
Divinity Students Association Endowment Fund
The Divinity Students Association Endowment Fund was established to enhance student life at the University of Chicago Divinity School. Possible uses for the DSA endowment include, but are not limited student travel grants, funding for graduate student conferences, and to help cover the cost of professional membership fees. Divinity School students may also propose that the Fund be used to support special projects designed to enrich the Divinity School community.
