Create your own Notre Dame experience.

Rector Pat Reidy and Student

We established the Student Experience Fund (formerly the Rector Fund) to ensure every student can participate in the full Notre Dame experience, regardless of his or her financial situation.

The Student Experience Fund can be used to cover most events or activities sponsored by the residence halls, Student Government, Student Activities, or the University. Students may also use money from the Student Experience Fund to cover ALL or only PART of the cost of an activity if they prefer to do so. Money can be used by students for event tickets (including JPW), ND sports tickets, retreats, seminar fees for service trips, and other similar events. If you’re not sure whether your request fits in the parameters of the Student Experience Fund, ASK!

The money you receive will be reported to the Office of Financial Aid and included in your existing financial aid package (receipt of Student Experience Funds may adjust a student’s existing financial aid package).

There are also funds available to eligible students for other necessities including laptop repairs, winter clothing, emergency travle, and other student needs.

To see if you're eligible, contact:
