Health and Wellness Funds

Are you experiencing financial challenges related to medical or emotional needs? Thanks to generous support from donors, Miami may be able to offer funding to help.

Michael G. Hayes Fund

The Michael G. Haye's available annual distribution can be used to assist one or more students with medical expenses that challenge their ability to remain enrolled and active at Miami. Expenses can include, but are not limited to, items such as wheelchairs, transportation to doctors, other un-anticipated expenses, and University fees. 

Morgan Family Student Mental Health Services Fund

The Morgan Family Student Mental Health Services helps Miami subsidize the cost of caring for its students who face difficult mental health obstacles, including depression, eating discorders, and sexual assault. The fund also provides support for staff resources, medication, and other costs associated with longer term mental health care. 

Open Doors Fund

The Open Doors Fund assists one or more students facing addiction or mental health barriers, the expenses for which challenge their ability to remain enrolled and active at Miami. Expenses can include, but are not limited to, counseling, treatment, other unanticipated expenses, and University fees.

A note from the Open Doors Donor

"The Open Doors Fund was inspired by our child who struggled with mental health and addiction while a student at Miami University. Like so many families desperate to help their child, we saw first-hand the gap that exists in mental health awareness and treatment at this critical stage in life. Our goal is to break down barriers to access and give students the opportunity to address their mental health needs at the moment they reach out for help. We hope the Open Doors Fund gives students who are struggling with mental health and addiction the support they need so they can to stay in school while they get better."
