Provide Urgent Relief for UT Students in Need

When COVID-19 changed the lives of students at The University of Texas at Austin this spring, the UT community rallied as only Longhorns can. As we continue to deal with the challenges of this pandemic, many students still urgently need your help to get through the fall semester.


Your Gift will be DOUBLED to help Twice as Many UT Students in Crisis!

The coronavirus pandemic has had unprecedented impact on communities around the world, and UT is no different. But our Longhorn community is resilient! Since April more than 4,000 alumni and friends have donated to the Student Emergency Fund, which has helped more than 3,500 students persevere.

Our job is not done. When students resume classes on Aug. 26, many will still be feeling the impact of lost wages after leaving campus in the spring and the uncertain future. The Student Emergency Fund will continue to serve as a vital resource.

Your support is critical to UT students' health, safety and academic success.

A gift to this emergency fund helps provide:

  • Funds for textbooks and other course materials to help students stay on track for graduation.
  • Medical and mental health service reimbursements and coverage for students impacted by COVID-19.
  • Funds for groceries to support students facing food insecurity.

Every gift will be MATCHED dollar for dollar by the UT President’s Office until we reach $2 million, which DOUBLES the number of students you are able to help this fall!


All funds raised will be administered and distributed by the university’s Student Emergency Fund to ensure equity and support for the students in greatest need.
