SUPPORT THE BUD MANSFIELD STUDENT EMERGENCY FUND

Many LSSU students are experiencing significant uncertainty when it comes to dealing with unanticipated costs related to getting home, food, housing and access to technology during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can join Lake State’s efforts to help students who are experiencing unforeseen challenges by donating to the Bud Mansfield Student Emergency Fund. With your support, we can act quickly and provide assistance that can lead to peace of mind and academic success, now and in the future.


Financial emergencies happen, and many times when it is least expected. The Bud Mansfield Student Emergency Fund was set up in 2001 to assist under-resourced students in times of need. Many times, these funds can be the difference between staying enrolled, and leaving Lake Superior State University.  Your gift can help ensure students do not have to be faced with that choice.

“The Bud Mansfield Student Emergency Fund is one reason LSSU has that personal touch! Having another tool in my box allows me the opportunity to change a students life trajectory, and that is extraordinary. Life happens, and having the ability to help a student in a pinch is enhancing our social mobility, while meeting the needs of the student and our LSSU community.”
