Emergency Funding for Students

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all our lives in many ways. This is true for Bemidji State students, too.

The Random Acts of Kindness program provides grants to BSU students who are experiencing immediate emergency situations such as car repairs, child care and medical bills, that might otherwise create barriers to academic success.

BSU donors have helped dozens of BSU students impacted by COVID-19. From a sophomore nursing major who lost his job and couldn't pay his electric bill, to a senior accounting major who simply needed a few dollars for a tank of gas to go home after the residence halls closed, to the freshman psychology student who couldn't afford groceries, passionate donors have made the difference for these students.

The one-time grants range from $50-$100 and are administered by the Office of Student Life and Success. 

For more information about the Random Acts of Kindness program, contact the BSU Foundation at (218) 755-2762 or via email at foundation@bemidjistate.edu


Student Appreciation

“I didn’t like the stress of not being able to afford such basic needs, so I'm thankful that the Random Acts of Kindness program exists."

"The fact that a donor made a gift to me when I needed it the most means so much to me."
