Students First Scholarship Fund

The economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is already being discussed by experts around the world. We know this impact will be felt by UNI’s students and their families as they look to cover the cost of their education not only this year, but in the years to come. Scholarship support helps keep the cost of a UNI education within reach regardless of changes to a student’s economic situation.


In this time of uncertainty, a gift supporting scholarships at UNI provides students a needed reminder that their education matters and the Panther family is here to support them regardless of the obstacles that arise.


COVID-19 Student Support Funds 

The University of Northern Iowa has a long history of supporting students in and out of the classroom.

These are unprecedented times. We are confident the Panther family will come together in support of our students. With the sudden disruption of life on UNI’s campus and in communities around the world, our students are facing an altered educational landscape that comes with new challenges. In addition to transitioning to online learning, students and families are facing unexpected costs including travel, relocation and technology needs in addition to potential loss of employment. We need your support.

You can help ease the financial stress the COVID-19 pandemic is causing with a gift in support of UNI’s students. Gifts to the Panther Pantry, the student emergency fund, and supporting scholarship program ensure our students will have access to the food, support, and security they need in this uncertain time.

Thank you for supporting our students and for believing in the transformative power of an educational experience at the University of Northern Iowa.
