Give Back to the Student Emergency Fund

Your generous donations and support help USD students facing emergency situations.

Student Emergency Fund

The USD Student Emergency Grant was created to provide financial assistance to enrolled students who are unable to meet qualifying expenses as a result of emergency situations, such as fires, natural disasters, criminal victimhood, loss of employment due to sudden economic downturns, acute medical events, unexpected family situations and other unforeseen catastrophes.

This assistance is not intended to replace or supplement existing financial aid or cover standard expenses like rent and meals and does not have to be repaid. Grants are limited to under $500 per academic year. Contribute to this fund using the form below.
