Aggies helping Aggies, A USU tradition

"I thought I was going to drop out of school and put my dreams on hold, but this scholarship has been a second chance for me. While my own family was not in a position to help, my Aggie family was and I will always be grateful for the love and help I received when I was in my darkest moment."

- Hailee H, 2017

The 1888 Challenge is to help every Aggie earn a degree and honor the USU tradition of Aggies helping Aggies. Since 1888 Utah State has worked hard to fulfill the land-grant mission—providing access to quality higher education for deserving students from all walks of life—and loyal alumni and friends like you have made that possible.

Utah State's Emergency Hardship Fund provides scholarships to students who have run into circumstances that otherwise cause them to drop out of school. Please help our Aggies when they need it most.

Even though most of us cannot make large gifts, we can band together to ensure students who deserve an Aggie education are able to finish one.
