To help students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, whose emergency needs are not covered by other resources, the FIU Foundation is collecting donations through FIUstrong. If you are able, please consider supporting one of the following funds.

  • Support students from specific academic areas by selecting the appropriate college or school fund. If the school or college meets its scholarship needs, funds will be utilized to aid qualified students in other areas.
  • The FIUstrong Fund supports the greatest emergency needs of faculty, staff, and students when other funding options cannot meet their specific needs.
  • Panther Protection: FIU Paying it Forward assists students facing difficulties threatening to interrupt their education. Grants cover needs not covered by other resources, including tuition, temporary housing, living expenses, food and car repairs.
  • The SOBEWFF® & FIU Chaplin School Hospitality Industry Relief Fund is providing financial support to employees of independently owned and operated restaurants and bars in South Florida.

During the coronavirus, we had to shut down our business. Owning a new business and attending graduate school hasn’t given us much room to save for emergencies. I am so grateful that [FIU] was able to help me when I was worried about the electric and rent being unpaid. I can’t thank donors enough. This rough time would have been much harder if it wasn’t for this scholarship.S. Richman, FIU student
