A helping hand in a time of need.
The UW-Stout Student Emergency Fund was created to assist students faced with the difficult decision whether to continue on in school or not, based on an unexpected financial challenge. It is assumed that students seeking funding from the student emergency fund have exhausted all other resources of financial aid and potential funding.
Emergency situations may include accident, illness, death of a family member, fire damage, natural disaster, need for temporary housing, or some other unexpected extenuating circumstance causing financial hardship.
Award amounts will vary depending on the type of emergency, the individual circumstances, the actual needs of the student affected by the emergency, and the availability of funds.
Emergency funds are currently limited to a maximum of $500 per person, per event.
