Big Ideas. Big Impact. Big Potential.

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln attracts a high percentage of the most academically talented Nebraskans, and its graduates form a significant portion of the business, cultural and professional resources of the state.

Change lives and save lives.

In the midst of this COVID-19 public health crisis, our mission has never been more clear or more critical. Join us in the fight by assisting students impacted by the crisis.

University of Nebraska Emergency Assistance Fund

The University of Nebraska Emergency Assistance Fund was created to help support students and employees on all four campuses who are now facing sudden financial hardship due to crisis situations such as last year’s flooding, personal hardship and now the current cancellation of on-campus classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Education takes a backseat for students who are food insecure or unable to pay housing and other expenses. Many don’t know the status of their employment, and many will return home for the rest of the semester. For some students, this is a life-altering crisis.

Please, if you’re able, consider a gift to the University of Nebraska Emergency Assistance fund to help at-risk students in our university family.
