Elevate Rebel Relief Efforts

When the University of Mississippi quickly transitioned to virtual classes this spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students suddenly had to grapple with food and housing insecurity, medical costs, and the expense of traveling home.

The Rebel Relief Disaster Fund was created so caring and compassionate supporters could help meet the most emergent needs of those UM students whose lives were unexpectedly affected by the health crisis.

Ole Miss alumni and friends stepped up to assist these students by giving to the Rebel Relief Disaster Fund. As a result of your generosity, the UM Financial Aid Office was able to provide $56,000 in grants to nearly 100 students. The average award was about $600.

The Ole Miss family deeply appreciates those who supported the Rebel Relief Disaster initiative earlier this year. The funds in this vital assistance program are nearly gone, but the needs of many students remain.

When students begin class this fall, some of them will continue to encounter financial challenges. Gifts to the Rebel Relief Disaster Fund will provide the assistance to overcome hardships and remain at Ole Miss.

By giving to this fund, you help ensure our students will have the support and resources necessary to thrive during their transformative journey at Ole Miss. Thank you!

Support our Campus Community

In the wake of COVID-19, many Ole Miss students were met with great unforeseeable financial challenges. Your gift to the Rebel Relief Disaster Fund will assist in meeting students’ needs.


Meet Adapting Needs

Our students have shown incredible resiliency, grit and determination as they adapt to our “new normal” and commit themselves to their academic pursuits. We applaud their hard work and ask that you help solve the challenges some face by contributing to this relief fund.


Invest in Students Now

When our Student Affairs team learns of a student’s need, it responds and provides needed funds within an average of 24 to 48 hours. The policy is to “drop and do!”


Help your Fellow Rebels

The average request for relief is around $600. So far, these funds have addressed housing insecurity, medical expenses, and the cost of traveling home. Gifts of all sizes add together to make a difference in the lives of your fellow Rebels.


Change a Life

Every one of us is called at some point to serve our Ole Miss family. During this time of uncertainty, we ask that you consider stepping up to be the difference maker for students in need. The impact of your gift today could help a student stay in school and graduate.
