IUPUI Emergency Fund

We're in this together

We are facing the most devastating public health crisis since the Spanish flu a century ago. During this time, many students have reached out to members of the administration expressing financial trouble due to the COVID-19 crisis. Options have been provided for each of these students, but we have nearly 30,000 students.

As we move deeper into this crisis, students will run out of options. They are losing their jobs, and now many also face unexpected financial hardships and need assistance with basics like food and housing.

Here's how you can help

President McRobbie recently highlighted the Indiana University Student Emergency Assistance Fund as a way to help students in need during these difficult times.

The IUPUI Student Emergency Relief Fund also provides critical support to students who are facing financial hardship, including difficulties that have arisen as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Processes already in place will ensure that funds flow rapidly to students in urgent need, especially in areas such as food and shelter, and we will stretch our resources as far as we can to help as many students as possible.
