Thank you for being there when UT students needed you most.
From mid-March to mid-May, over 10% of our student body requested support from the Student Emergency Fund prior to the opening of UT’s CARES Act Fund. To put that incredible need into context, during the entire 2018-19 academic year just 315 students requested support.
Your gifts contributed to:
- $3,247,714.24 given directly to 3,804 Longhorns in need.
- $1,829,785 given to 2,001 students in need of support for basic needs like housing, meals and utilities.
- $962,129 given to 1,435 students in need of academic technology, including 621 new computers.
- $455,800 given to support hundreds of UT students who were studying abroad and needed support to cover emergency housing and/or urgent travel back home.
Nearly half of the students who received support are first-generation college students. Half of the students who received support have family incomes of less than $60,000 per year.
Thank you again for supporting UT students.
