Loving Lynx is an emergency funding resource available to CU Denver students dealing with unanticipated events including accidents, medical or dental emergencies, natural disasters, or a need for temporary housing. If you are unsure if your situation constitutes as an unanticipated event, we encourage you to contact the Dean of Students Office to discuss your situation.Funds are only distributed when the student is experiencing an unexpected financial hardship resulting from an emergency or crisis situation that threatens the student’s ability to successfully complete the current semester. Each application will be handled on a case-by-case basis, to be reviewed by the Loving Lynx committee.
Receiving Loving Lynx funds doesn't impact a student's current financial aid package. But, additional campus and community resources and solutions will be explored and exhausted before Loving Lynx funds are allocated.
Loving Lynx funds are not intended to substitute for the regular financial aid or scholarship process. However, the committee may be able to assist in connecting the student with campus or community resources for those kinds of funds.
