Duke Student Assistance Fund

Support for serving Duke’s missions from near and far during the COVID-19 pandemic

In March 2020, Duke University set up a fund to assist Duke undergraduate, graduate and professional students with unexpected expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Duke Student Assistance Fund (DSAF) was one of three funds established by the university in the wake of the pandemic.

Between April and August 2020, the DSAF distributed 3,534 grants totaling over $5 million to 2,662 students. This included 118 loaner laptops distributed to students to meet technology needs.

While this fund is no longer open, some additional resources for students are listed below
