The Seth Nelsen Student Emergency Grant (x12750) supports students who are experiencing one-time financial challenges. This fund helps cover unexpected expenses that impact a student’s enrollment.

They remain committed to helping students in crisis, such as supporting this fund. Donate to The Student Emergency Grant

The Student Emergency Housing Fund (x12870) supports students who are currently residing in our short-term emergency housing program. The program includes up to 30 days in the residence halls with 2 meals a day provided, while students meet with a case manager to identify long-term solutions. Donations to this fund help pay for meals and housing support for students in one-time, unexpected housing emergencies that impact their enrollment. Donate to The Student Emergency Housing Fund
