Support Our Spartans (S0S)

There are times when emergencies and urgent demands arise that we aren’t financially prepared to take on. This happens more than you might think to students attending Michigan State, and the University is committed to removing such hardships whenever possible. The Support Our Spartans (SOS) Fund was created to assist students with basic needs like rent, removing food insecurity and other essential expenses during times of crisis.

Through the Support Our Spartans Student Emergency Needs Fund, the Division of Student Life & Engagement provides students with immediate financial support to cover educational costs and unanticipated expenses when hardships arise such as accidents, illness, death of a family member, fire damage or need for temporary housing.

With your gift, MSU can help students in need pay the balance on their tuition bill, purchase food, make the monthly payment on their health insurance, travel home during an emergency, and many other unforeseen expenses.

A donation to the SOS Fund can turn an unexpected moment of crisis into a moment of unexpected generosity for a Spartan student. Support during times like these can “make or break” a student’s financial position and create the opportunity to removing potential road blocks on the road to graduation.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me this scholarship! It is because of your generosity, I will be able to finish this semester. I would like to thank you again for all that you're doing. It is because of you that I have some hope left in finishing." - Danielle
