In responding to the evolving challenges of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the safety of our community through social distancing and the success of our students are our top priorities.
Edinboro has remained dedicated to supporting students who are unable to return home, and many who have returned home continue to need our help. We anticipate that many students may need food, housing, and assistance during this unprecedented situation. Others may need support in the event they are unable to return home. If you are looking for a way to help, we encourage you to give to the Student Hardship Fund. As we navigate through this difficult time, your gift of support to this fund means more than ever to students like Nicole:
The impact of your gift on our students, our faculty and campus cannot be overstated.I cannot express how grateful I am to be receiving this award. My education is my top priority and without financial assistance such as this, I would be unable to continue my studies at Edinboro. Being cut off from federal financial aid is terrifying, as the costs of post-secondary education are high, but so very worth the investment. Thank you for believing in my dream and helping to provide the funds necessary to achieve it. It is my hope that I will make you proud.
As the university relies more each day on private funding, gifts to our endowment, capital or research funds are critical to maintaining the quality education our alumni and students have come to expect. Today, more than ever, your gift will make a difference.
