The Student Emergency Fund provides emergency financial support to currently enrolled Xavier students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses because of temporary hardship related to an unexpected situation. This fund is an important tool to help students get over small hurdles and stay on track for success.
Every dollar donated goes directly to a Xavier student in need. Typically, Xavier students receive anywhere from $50 - $500 to cover an unexpected emergency - like a flight home for a family illness, short-term rent assistance, or emergency room expenses not covered by insurance.
Sometimes an unexpected expense - like a car repair, an injury, or family illness - can make it difficult to pay your bills, get to work, or stay on top of your coursework. The Student Emergency Fund helps students get through these temporary set-backs and back on course. It can make the difference in getting a student to graduation.
