The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on our College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, & Natural Resources students. financially, emotionally, and physically. We have received 338 requests for emergency funds and continue to receive additional requests as the semester goes on. At least 22% of the students requesting aid specifically mentioned COVID or unemployment in their applications.
The College's alumni and friends work daily to make our state and our world a better place. Your donation will help current CABNR students who are following in your footsteps.
The CABNR Student Emergency Fund will be used to provide undergraduate and graduate students with critical support needed to continue their University education, despite facing unexpected challenges associated with COVID-19 or other unexpected emergencies.
“This support will allow me to keep my housing and avoid being homeless again. I lost my job due to COVID and have struggled to pay my bills.” - CABNR Undergraduate Student
Every gift to CABNR, no matter the size, will make a difference.
In many cases, a small amount of support can be the difference between a student staying in college or dropping out. On average, CABNR students requesting aid receive $300. This can make a big difference, enabling a student to buy textbooks or meet basic needs in these uncertain times.
Thank you for joining together to help our amazing students stay on track to earn their degree.
