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.

Global Center for Health Security Response Fund

Your gift supports the Global Center for Health Security and its rapid response abilities, including training, education, and clinical expertise for infectious diseases. UNMC and Nebraska Medicine have a critical national and global role.


UNMC Student Scholarship Fund

A gift to this fund supports students by providing scholarships recognizing academic excellence and financial need. The scholarships are awarded through UNMC’s Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.


UNMC Disaster and Relief Fund

The UNMC Disaster and Relief Fund supports students and employees at UNMC who are now facing sudden financial hardship, such as crisis situations resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
