Husky Emergency Assistance Fund

Michigan Tech's Campus in the fall.

Huskies Helping Huskies

One of Michigan Tech's main priorities is the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff. The Husky Emergency Assistance Fund (HEAF) has been established to help members of our campus community who are experiencing financial hardship, especially during the COVID-19 crisis.

If you have any questions or need clarification regarding the Husky Emergency Assistance Fund Application, please email Melissa Michaelson at or call 906-487-1567. In this time of great uncertainty, we want you to know that Michigan Tech cares. Please know we are here to support you in any way we can.

What is the difference between the Husky Emergency Assistance Fund (HEAF) and the CARES Act?

The HEAF and the CARES Act are different sources of funding. The HEAF is supported by private donations raised by Michigan Tech's Advancement Office to assist students and employees of Michigan Tech during emergency situations. The CARES Act is money given to the university from the federal government to be made available to Michigan Tech students only. CARES Act application details will be available soon.
