The Cornell University COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund assists currently enrolled students with unanticipated expenses due to the pandemic.

Your gift goes directly to students who need help covering expenses above and beyond the standard cost of attending Cornell. These expenses can include technology for remote learning, and shipping, moving, and storage costs in the event students need to leave campus. Unexpected costs like these add up fast and leave our most vulnerable students scrambling for solutions when situations change suddenly.

Covering unanticipated expenses for students who need assistance is critical to ensuring their success at Cornell. Your gift promotes equity among our student body as Cornellians continue to navigate the pandemic as best they can. Small gifts add up fast and can make a big difference.
