Student Assistance Fund
The Student Assistance Fund (SAF) provides financial assistance to students to help prevent emergency situations or unexpected financial needs from impacting a student’s ability to fully participate in their experience at the University of Denver (DU). The fund is designed to offset a short-term financial need and is not intended to replace or supplement financial aid or other sources of income. Students can explore how to address long-term needs by meeting with a Student Outreach & Support (SOS) Case Manager to determine available options.
