Student Emergency Fund
Donation Page

The Student Emergency Fund provides assistance to NIU students facing temporary hardship related to COVID-19. This support will help our students stay in school during this critical time so that they can graduate and join our proud Huskie family.


Gifts provide resources and funding for students who are struggling with access to technology, employment, housing, meals, transportation and other critical, basic needs.


The Student Emergency Fund is administered through a partnership between the NIU Foundation, the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office, the Office of the Provost, Academic Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the Office of the Dean of Students. 


Your gift will lend a helping hand to NIU students who need assistance, showing that when it comes to supporting our students, Huskies. Never. Quit.
