Frequently Asked Questions
- How can I help/donate additional funds to help students?

The FIUstrong Fund supports the greatest emergency needs of students, faculty and staff when other funding options cannot meet their specific needs. You can give to either fund.
- Where do I refer a student that needs help?
If a student needs financial assistance, they should complete the aid request form. Students should submit an emergency aid request form at go.fiu.edu/eaidrequest.
You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the student and a staff member will reach out to the student to assist him or her in completing the request form.
