Student Emergency Fund

This campaign ended on July 01, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Colorado School of Mines by clicking here!

Rise up, Mines!

When our students are in need, Mines is here for them. 

As Mines moves to virtual learning in response to COVID-19, we ask that you consider current students who are facing unprecedented circumstances by supporting the Student Emergency Fund. In addition, your generosity helps Mines continue to provide resources to Orediggers facing difficult circumstances like the loss of a family member, natural disasters, an unhealthy living situation or food insecurity.

Your gift will provide immediate resources like:

  • Just-in-time relief for Mines to respond to low-resource students who are greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including lost wages, travel, food or housing needs.
  • Improved virtual learning resources and digital crisis support services.
  • Funding for clothing, school supplies or computers for students who lost housing to a fire, flood, natural disaster or other emergency.
  • Grocery money or a meal plan for a student who is struggling to pay for basic needs.
  • Travel expenses so a student can attend a family member's funeral or assist their family during a time of need.
  • Rent or living expenses to make a transition or move out of an unhealthy living situation.
  • Counseling services to resolve issues from a traumatic life event.
  • Testing services for disabilities if not covered by insurance.

Thank you for providing a lifeline for a student in crisis.
