At CEC alone, thousands of dollars have been raised in support of FIUStrong and dozens have already benefited, thanks to the generosity of college alumni, corporate partners, donors, faculty, staff and other friends.
FIUStrong was created by the FIU Foundation to provide emergency financial assistance to faculty, staff and students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, when other funding options failed to meet their specific needs.
Students and their families, who received much-needed assistance through this emergency aid campaign, have shared their gratitude with us. We wish to extend their gratitude to you by sharing their stories.
We are here for you, and we hear you.
The financial assistance was a great help. It allowed me to stay safe and focused on my studies, especially since I am already considered part of the high-risk population.
