University of Nebraska Emergency Assistance Fund

We're working to support the needs of University of Nebraska students, faculty and staff affected by COVID-19 through the Emergency Assistance Fund, which helps currently enrolled students and current university employees who face financial hardship resulting from emergency or crisis situations such as the pandemic.

Every gift helps, and when combined with the donations of others, will provide the help a student or employee needs when facing the unexpected.
