Betty Chavis Emergency Fund

Launched in spring 2012, the Betty Chavis Emergency Fund was established to provide financial support to Pell-eligible students who experience a crisis or financial emergency. The fund was named in honor of Betty Chavis, who worked tirelessly for Michigan Tech students for more than 20 years.

One of Chavis’s dreams was to establish a fund that could provide students in emergency situations with immediate financial support.

The fund is managed by the Dean of Students Office. For questions about eligibility or the application process, email
