Student Emergency Relief Fund

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to unfold, Eagles have come together to help our students navigate unique and evolving circumstances.
Give Now

Today, many AU students are still managing significant difficulties resulting from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, including health concerns, lost wages, changing family finances, new technology needs, and other shifts in everyday life.

From the start, members of the AU community asked how they could help AU students, and many generously donated to the Student Emergency Relief Fund. With your support, the Student Emergency Relief Fund will continue to help our students find solutions.  

The Student Emergency Relief Fund provides funds and flexibility needed to help our highest-need students cover unanticipated costs associated with COVID-19, such as travel, housing, and tools required for distance learning.
