We know how hard it can be financially to make ends meet as adjunct faculty, let alone adjunct faculty who have their classes cut. The PFT has established an emergency relief fund for its members who had classes cut called the MERF, and attached are details on how to apply for up to $500 in one-time relief funding.
The deadline for applying for the current cycle is November 16. Please review the criteria and get your applications submitted. We have $10,000 set aside for this academic year for this fund.
