Generosity in Michigan Tech Student Community

by University Marketing and Communications

In a student-led effort, some Michigan Tech students have elected to donate the money they received from the CARES Act to the Husky Emergency Assistance Fund to help fellow students in need.

In order to help alleviate the financial impact COVID-19 has had on students, Michigan Tech has distributed $1.5 million from its CARES Act relief funds via a $350 grant to all eligible students.

The Husky Emergency Assistance Fund (HEAF) was recently established to help members of our campus community who are experiencing financial hardship, especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The fund is supported by the generous donations of Michigan Tech alumni and friends. All current students, faculty, and staff who have incurred emergency-related expenses, and can demonstrate need, are welcome to apply.

To donate to the fund, get more information, or complete an application for financial assistance, visit the Husky Emergency Assistance Fund website, or contact the HEAF at heaf@mtu.edu or 906-487-1567.
