The IU Student Emergency Assistance Fund

September is the first full month of classes in the new academic year, and we're thrilled to see all our campuses buzzing with students again. With all the renewed energy and activity, it's also a good time to remember that for some students, a relatively minor financial crisis can disrupt their entire education and progression toward a degree. Learn more about how you can support IU students through an unforeseen financial hardship and help them thrive as they continue to prepare for their future.

How emergency funding can change a student's life

Many talented students come to school and face things they didn't expect. In fact, more than 700 students drop out of IU each year because of a sudden financial hardship. Countless others struggle in the face of unexpected shortfalls. To be able to respond to the immediate needs of students—on any IU campus—IU established the Indiana University Student Emergency Assistance Fund. Read how this fund has changed students' lives and why your gifts mean everything in times of crisis.
