Students at UTEP are: 

  • hard working
  • resourceful
  • caring
  • talented
  • intelligent 

As COVID-19 spreads, UTEP is keeping students, faculty and staff as healthy as possible, helping students complete the semester and doing our part to slow the spread of the virus in our community.

As the nation continues to respond, our students are facing serious hardship. Some have lost jobs, and others are scrambling to figure out how to complete coursework completely online. We have students who have unexpectedly returned from studying abroad and are self-isolating and others who have had to move out of residence halls unexpectedly. 

You can help. 

Join UTEP's efforts to address the immediate needs of students experiencing hardship as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Your gift will help UTEP students in need due to this very unusual circumstance. 


The Impact of Your Gift

A gift to the Student Emergency Fund offers UTEP students timely financial support that can help them through a tough time and keep them on track to academic success. Your support also shows that Miners always help Miners. 

This fund is entirely supported by charitable donations like yours, and any amount helps meet a student’s time-sensitive need. With your support, the committee that administers the fund can act quickly to fulfill even more student requests. Your support will meet a UTEP student’s need during this crisis and help them stay on track to graduate. The UTEP Student Emergency Fund has always been here to help students through tough times - and now it is needed more than ever.
