BIG RAPIDS, Mich. — Ferris State University has created a student hardship fund to help students who are in difficult circumstances brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The fund, created by The Ferris Foundation and the Alumni Association, raised more than $38,000 in donations from alumni, staff, parents and friends of the school in its first full day of existence.

Students can go to the Office of Financial Aid to submit a request for support with an explanation of their situation. Students can receive up to $300 to help meet their particular needs.
