A Student Emergency Fund was established in March to support Augsburg students with financial relief as we all grapple with the challenges of COVID-19. In these disruptive times, many students are experiencing the loss of income and jobs as segments of the economy shut down, struggles to provide for their families, obstacles in returning home to out-of-state residences, and uncertainty about their ability to finance their Augsburg education.
With this fund, students are able to request emergency funding for basic needs, including food, rent, transportation, and medication. They may also request funding for academic materials—such as books, supplies, laptop computer rentals, and wireless internet—to ensure their education is not impacted by a lack of attainable resources.
