To mobilize support for emergency aid FIU is raising to assist those in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the university has activated #FIUstrong.
Three funds are helping students, faculty and staff, and members of the local hospitality industry.
Panther Protection: FIU Paying it Forward assists students facing difficulties threatening to interrupt their education. Grants cover needs including tuition, temporary housing, living expenses, food and car repairs.
FIUstrong Fund is open to faculty, staff and students who require assistance due to a wide range of emergencies.
SOBEWFF® & FIU Chaplin School Hospitality Industry Relief Fund is providing financial support to employees of independently owned and operated restaurants and bars in South Florida.
During difficult times, Panthers unite.
