Student Wellness Subsidy Program

The UP SW Subsidy Program is a grant to reduce the cost of prescribed medication and other mental health services. The subsidy covers a portion of the cost of medicines and professional services that mental health professionals prescribe. It is a means of encouraging students to comply with the treatment prescribed by their health professionals.

The subsidy of  7,500 per semester covers a portion of the treatment cost. During the semester, grantees selected by the CU Student Affairs Units shall receive the full amount. Since the Program aims to address an urgent and specific need, rules on the maximum benefits students may receive as financial assistance will not apply.

Eligibility Criteria

All bonafide UP students (i.e., Students enrolled in Certificate Programs, Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students) who were advised to seek professional help, treatment, and medications for their mental health condition may apply to the SW Subsidy Program. There are no grade or minimum load requirements.
