Student Emergency Support Fund

About the Fund

The LSU Student Emergency Support Fund (SESF) benefits students in need of support in emergency situations. This fund has assisted students who have lost everything after storms, hurricanes, fires, and other disasters. Funds are limited, and when available, are disbursed based on review of the SESF Application Form below.

Please note that the Student Emergency Support Fund is a separate fund and application process that is not associated with the federal aid that LSU received through the CARES Act or the Higher Education Emergency Relief Act. Any questions regarding those funds should be directed to LSU Financial Aid & Scholarships
