International students and scholars at the University of Iowa in F-1 or J-1 status are often not eligible for the same resources as U.S. citizens and permanent residents. The UI Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) has created a Web site detailing the types of funding available to those in the F-1 and J-1 non-immigrant categories. The list includes information on financial support, housing, food, clothing, furniture, moving and clean-up assistance and short term loans for students. Other resources are being added regularly. International students and scholars are strongly urged to check the OISS Web site at http://international.uiowa.edu/oiss/documents/Flood-Assistance.pdf or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
