With the support of BSU’s generous donors and federal CARES Act assistance, BSU established a Student Emergency Fund. BSU disbursed approximately $4.5 million in emergency support to students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Thanks to new funding from a second round of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, BSU will increase student emergency funding by 35% by allocating $6 million in new COVID-19 related student emergency funds and student support this calendar year.
