Kent State Students Share Their COVID-19 Experiences

Nearly 6,000 students have applied for emergency assistance from Kent State. Of those, 55 percent have lost their jobs, and 38 percent of applicants have a parent who has lost their job.

Kent State students share their personal experiences with COVID-19 below. Each of them received support from the Kent State Emergency Grant Fund that helped them pay for rent, groceries, technology to finish classes and other necessities.

However, there are currently more than 1,000 students still waiting for support.

If you can, please consider making a gift to the Kent State Emergency Grant Fund today. Your gift provides immediate assistance to Kent State students who are struggling to support themselves and their families.
