Student Emergency Aid
Please join us in making a difference in the lives of Ball State Cardinals by donating to the Jack Beyerl Emergency Aid fund.
The Jack Beyerl Emergency Aid Fund provides financial assistance to Ball State students who experience accidents, illnesses, financial hardships, or other personal emergencies that negatively affect their ability to remain enrolled.
The Student Emergency Aid Fund provides much-needed, direct financial support to Ball State students experiencing unforeseen difficulties during this time. Students have lost jobs due to businesses closing, budget cuts, or because they opted to return home to be with family during this national crisis. Without paychecks, they worry they won’t be able to pay the rent, utilities, or the grocery bill.
We are seeing more and more students request assistance from the Jack Beyerl Emergency Aid Fund. As the University works to assist as many students as possible, we ask you to consider making a gift to help us respond to this increased demand. Your support will provide immediate and direct assistance to help us continue to support, advocate, and champion our students.
The fund is named in honor of Merril “Jack” Beyerl who enjoyed a distinguished career of 35 years (1953-88) at Ball State where he served in numerous roles. He began his tenure as a faculty in Counseling Psychology and then became Director of the Counseling Center. In 1964, he became Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students. A role he maintained until his retirement in 1988.
