Student Emergency Assistance Fund

What is the SEAF?


The Student Emergency Assistance Fund (SEAF) provides students the necessities they may need during their Samford experience. For example, should a student need a tank of gas to go home for the holidays, a plane ticket to attend a family funeral, or toiletries during a month when they have none, students may apply for emergency financial assistance.  Requests are confidential, and awards are considered by an anonymous committee of peers from the Philanthropy Awareness Council (pac), faculty and staff.

Blue Jean Fridays


Samford faculty and staff can contribute to the Student Emergency Assistance Fund by participating Blue Jean Fridays. On Fridays, faulty and staff members are given the opportunity to contribute three dollars to the SEAF, allowing them to wear blue jeans to work that day.
