Student Emergency Fund

Realizing that students sometimes face unexpected emergencies, Cowboy Parents established the Student Emergency Fund in 1991. Students confronting crisis situations may contact the director of the Student Financial Aid Office at 174 Knight Hall or (307) 766-3790 for possible assistance.

The fund has helped students traveling for funerals, funded urgent medical or dental procedures, covered the costs of books and supplies when fire destroyed a student's home, helped replace a student's textbook and calculator stolen just before midterms, and many other difficulties demanding money up front.

The dollars provided through this fund are not a loan, but students receiving support are encouraged to repay the fund if possible so that other students also may benefit. We are proud to say that UW students have a strong track record of replacing these dollars when they have the resources to do so.
