Student Emergency Fund

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the University awarded a limited number of student emergency funds to students facing hardships during the COVID-19 pandemic. These emergency funds supported students in navigating and overcoming a variety of challenges related to completing the Spring 2020 semester at Drake.

Please note that the Student Emergency Fund is separate from the CARES Act Emergency Grant program. Information about CARES Act funds, including how to apply, may be found within the CARES Act Emergency Grants FAQ's.
