Student Emergency Support Fund helped 39 students in 2019-2020

The Student Emergency Support Fund helped 39 students with emergency expenses such as housing, food, medical, and transportation costs. The purpose of the fund is to help students continue in school when they face an emergency expense that might otherwise cause them to stop their education. This is funded by generous donors from Heidelberg University employees, alumni, and friends. The Student Emergency Support Fund will be available again once the fall 2020 semester begins. If a Heidelberg University student has current emergency expenses caused by COVID-19 they are encouraged to apply for the Cares Act Emergency Relief Funds here.
