Connecting Jayhawks to campus and community financial resources.

The Emergency Aid Network (EAN) was created based on a variety of research and guidance available in the field of higher education. Below you will find a handful of the resources referenced in the creation of the EAN at KU, and the tools and guiding documents that are being used as we move forward in furthering our supports for students.

Individuals and groups can get involved in the KU Emergency Aid Network efforts in various ways:


Individuals and groups have the option to contribute to existing emergency funds on campus through donations, or create a new emergency fund with KU Endowment.

Provide Information

We also welcome individuals to submit information to the Emergency Aid Network about additional campus and community resources that are available to students experiencing financial obstacles. Relevant resources will be reviewed and added to this website.

Join The Network

If an office, unit, department, or school has raised or been given funds or other resources to use towards KU student financial needs, they are welcome to become a participating member in the Emergency Aid Network. You can find more information on our Join The Network page that will explain how different areas across campus have come together to provide students with easier access to resources when they are experiencing financial hardships.
