All Flood Information Updates
Thursday, August 19, 2010
- 1:27 p.m. – Update for Flood Relief Fund Applicants: Applications for support from the Vanderbilt Flood Relief Fund have been reviewed and it is expected that awards will be issued by the end of August. Recipients of support must have been employed at Vanderbilt on May 1, 2010, have sustained significant flood damage, be currently employed at Vanderbilt in a regular or term (not temporary) position, and be in a regular or term position at the time of award. Because the funds available are limited, and the needs are great, the awards will necessarily be modest in size.
