With the support of BSU’s generous donors and federal CARES Act assistance, BSU established a Student Emergency Fund. The Fund has already helped more than 1,500 students, disbursing approximately $1 million in aid to help students who had been impacted by the pandemic to pay their bills and other costs. For the 2020-2021 academic year, BSU has approximately $3.4 million available in the Student Emergency Fund to assist enrolled students, and also has invested an additional half million dollars in local financial aid.
