Cowboy Strong Student Emergency Fund (2018)

What is the Cowboy Strong Student Emergency Fund?

Established in the fall of 2016, the Cowboy Strong Student Emergency Fund was created to ensure that no student misses out on the Cowboy experience due to an unforeseen emergency. Each academic year, a number of students experience varied circumstances that force them to depart from Oklahoma State University due to finances rather than continue their education. Currently, Oklahoma State University has limited resources to support more than 25,000 students on multiple campuses. This project serves to unite the Cowboy Family in extending opportunity to all students experiencing dire financial need who have exhausted all other resources.

Your Gifts Make a Difference:

  • Since August, 26 students in need have received aid from the Cowboy Strong Student Emergency Fund
  • The average aid package is $1,472 - that's the difference between students staying or leaving OSU
  • Cowboy Strong has distributed more $26,000 this year

Here’s how you can help:

  • Make a contribution to the Cowboy Strong Student Emergency Fund. Your gift, no matter the size, will pair with the many from the Cowboy family to support students in dire need. Our goal is to provide OSU with funds to support our students with the greatest need.
  • Share this opportunity within your network. Whether you click the Facebook and Twitter links on this page, send an email, or tell a friend - spreading the word of need is important to helping reach our goal.

Gifts to this project through the OSU Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, are tax deductible as allowed by law.  If you have questions about your gift, please contact the OSU Foundation at 800.622.4678.

During the fall of 2016, two student groups created the Cowboy Strong Student Emergency Fund. Congrats to them for their awesome support of students in need!


Prepare for the Unexpected

Last fall with 109 days until Finals Week, Hurricane Harvey made landfall. Thanks to the Cowboy family, students were helped throughout this unexpected tragedy.


Help Students See Graduation

Fall enrollment was 25,254 students and we'll continue to need emergency funding for those experiencing unforeseen circumstances. Our gifts help ensure these students see graduation!


Be a Lifeline
