Student Emergency Fund
One of  MSU Denver’s core values is access—all students should have access to resources they need to succeed in college and finish their education. The Student Emergency Fund is an emergency stipend for MSU Denver students who are dealing with unanticipated and/or catastrophic life events that might otherwise cause the student to stop or pause their educational goals. 

In 2022, MSU Denver provided more than $300,000 to students in need of help with housing costs, utilities, car repairs, childcare and other financially difficult situations.

DREAMer Emergency Fund 
The Dreamer Emergency Fund is an emergency stipend for MSU Denver students who have; undocumented, DACA, or TPS status. The fund is managed in collaboration with the Student Care Center and the Immigrant Services Program. Applications will be reviewed as funds last. Once funds are exhausted, additional applications will not be reviewed. 

More than 150 MSU Denver Dreamers were provided emergency financial assistance in 2022. Funds provided amounted over $300,000, and covered legal costs, immigration fees, DACA renewals, and other financially difficult situations.

What kind of expenses are covered by these funds?
The Student Emergency and DREAMer Emergency funds are one-time emergency assistance to students who are dealing with an unanticipated life event - such as safety and health-related needs, personal medical, dental, or mental health emergencies, emergency family medical or death expenses, and much more. Supporting MSU Denver emergency funds directly impacts our students’ quality of life by providing the critical support they need to be successful. 

Your Support 
When you support the Student Emergency Fund or the DREAMer Emergency Fund, our most vulnerable students can stay at MSU Denver, finish their degree and go on to make a difference in their communities. Both of these funds are made possible because of Roadrunners like you, and the amount of aid available is dependent on the support we get from our generous donors. 

We are so grateful for all that you do to provide assistance to our students!
