 In an effort to help those who depend on work to cover their living and education expenses while at Purdue Fort Wayne, the university has started a relief fund to help its students impacted by COVID-19.

On Tuesday, Purdue Fort Wayne officials announced a Student Relief Fund and donations can be made of any amount to help students at this time.

On Monday, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb issued an order restricting Hoosiers from non-essential travel. Many restaurants, bars and other businesses are closed, or have cut staff as they have shifted services to carryout.

Purdue Fort Wayne's program will be managed by the Office of Student Affairs and strict criteria will be followed to determine a student’s eligibility and the amount of aid they receive.

According to Chancellor Ronald L. Elsenbaumer, the students and their education are helping to form northeast Indiana’s future workforce. Community support is needed to help ensure their success.
