About the Student Emergency Fund
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted lives and livelihoods in communities around the world, and Virginia Tech is no exception. This unprecedented situation has posed acute and unexpected challenges to many students now struggling to afford basic necessities like rent and groceries.
The Student Emergency Fund, administered through the dean of students’ office, assists students who are in urgent need. Supported entirely by contributions from generous Hokies, the fund has seen a dramatic growth in requests for help since March — far more than ever before.
We've been able to help many students so far, but the need for support is urgent and ongoing. If you are able to give to the Student Emergency Fund today, you can make an enormous difference for Hokies in need.
