Student Wildfire Hardship Relief

This year has proven to be the worst wildfire season in California's history. These fires have disrupted the lives of some HSU students during already challenging circumstances. Evacuation, loss of internet, poor air quality and for some, the loss of a home are devastating events. Donate to the Student Adversity Fund today and help students keep learning and progress to their degree. This fund provides immediate assistance to students who have an unexpected situation or emergency that could force them to drop out of school.

Your gift will help HSU students affected by the wildfires continue their education at HSU.
