Crisis fund continues for employees and students

The WashU Crisis Response Fund will continue to provide financial support to
students and employees this fall. The university established the fund in March after the onset of the COVID-19 crisis.

Undergraduate, graduate and professional students who needed support to pay for unexpected costs for essentials such as housing, food and medicine between the start of the semester and Oct. 31 received assistance.

The university will reassess the student fund in mid-October to determine its
capacity to provide further support to students beyond Oct. 31.

Employees may seek support to cover unanticipated expenses such as food,
housing, utility bills, medical co-payments and child care during the time period of Aug. 1 to Nov. 30. Applications will be accepted through Oct. 30.
The crisis response fund continues to accept contributions toward this effort.
