Honors College Student Emergency Fund

“The Honors College Student Emergency Fund is one of the reasons I was able to finish my degree program.”

Chelsea Fisk was heading into her final semester at MSU when an unexpected financial crisis “left me nowhere to turn for aid.”

Because of the generosity of donors who gave to the Honors College Student Emergency Fund, Chelsea was able to contact the Honors College and receive funding she needed for her final semester of college.

“Without this aid, I would have had to take a hiatus from my education to raise the money required to finish my degree. I am grateful beyond words to the Honors College for stepping in and providing assistance when I needed it most.”

Sometimes, the crisis a student faces threatens their ability to regain their footing as a high-achieving student.

The Honors College assists students facing a serious financial hardship, providing the money they need to continue pursuing their dreams. Donations to the Honors College Student Emergency Fund go directly to the students who need a hand because of an unforeseen circumstance, helping them get back on track.
