MSOE established the Student Persistence Fund in Spring 2020 to address student needs associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic. While the immediate crisis has passed, the fund has continued to serve as a resource for MSOE students in need.
With the onset of the pandemic, many of our students lost a part-time job that supported their education. Additional student needs also arose including money to buy food, housing insecurity, transportation and medical prescriptions. One year later, some students still face challenges addressing the costs associated with a college education. Gifts to the Student Persistence Fund will go directly to those who need it most.
