Emergency Funding

The Liberal Arts Emergency Fund assists Liberal Arts undergraduate, graduate, and World Campus students whose circumstances demonstrate a need for temporary financial assistance.

When granted, the emergency funding can help ease financial burdens caused by:

  • unexpected job loss
  • family illness
  • other life emergencies beyond the student’s control

Awards typically do not exceed $2,500 and are not intended to provide ongoing relief. Emergency funds may be delayed or unavailable during summer and winter breaks.
