Update Oct. 12, 2022 

FGCU is pausing the application process for the Eagles in Need relief fund so we can focus on distributing the funds we currently have available to the identified students, faculty and staff with the greatest need. We anticipate reopening the application forms following additional fundraising efforts. During the pause, support teams for students and employees will continue to process the forms that have already been submitted. We appreciate your patience as we work to distribute funds to those who need it most.
