LSU Foundation Student Relief Fund


The LSU Foundation is collaborating with entities campus-wide to establish the "Hurricane Katrina Student Relief Fund" to assist LSU students who have lost financial support or have been displaced due to Hurricane Katrina. 


The fund will also aid those students from affected universities who have enrolled at LSU and who have suffered financial hardship and property loss associated with the storm and its subsequent effects on the State of Louisiana.


Students will be able to apply for funds through the Office of Student Aid and Scholarships beginning in October.  For more information on this process, contact Mary Parker at    


Hurricane Katrina has had a devastating effect on Louisiana and its people.  In the days following the disaster, LSU has faced a number of challenges, from providing emergency care for hurricane victims to mobilizing hundreds of student volunteers to assist relief agencies. 


Providing assistance for university students, many of them now homeless, who are attending LSU is now a very high priority for our university… and we need your help.
