Student Emergency Fund - ASU Mountain Home Campus
Creating Opportunities Image


Dr. Ed Coulter, former chancellor of ASUMH for 17 years, has a heart of giving in everything he does.  His generosity spans from being on the American Cancer Society board of directors, on the board of the Baptist Medical Center system, and being a grandfather to 13 children.  There have been over 12,925 students that have attended our University during his tenure and, due to his leadership, it is sure that each has had their lives changed in some way.  

The Faculty and Staff wish to honor his legacy by creating The Ed Coulter Student Emergency Fund, due to his dedicated service to our campus, and so his name can continue to directly impact the lives of students.

The ASU-Mountain Home Ed Coulter Student Emergency Fund is being established to provide one-time financial assistance grants to students who find themselves in situations of economic need which would interfere with the completion of the semester.

Often the ability to overcome an unexpected monetary crisis can make the difference between staying in school or dropping out in order to handle the financial crisis. We know students who drop out, even when the intent is temporary, are less likely to complete their degree than those students who overcome a financial crisis and continue their education. Not all students have resources to get through a temporary financial crisis. This fund will be available to students without resources to help them stay on track in pursuit of their educational goals.
