Emergency Financial Assistance

The Student Advocacy Center hopes to help current students who are struggling due to financial emergency. 

Student Emergency Funding
may be a resource for students at risk of dropping out of the university due to an unexpected financial emergency.  (Please note: this fund cannot assist with university expenses such as tuition or student health insurance.)  


If you recently applied for emergency funding, your application will be reviewed in the order it was received.  All awards are considered based on eligibility and availability of remaining resources.  You will receive email communication regarding the application decision as soon as it is available. 

Please know that the Student Advocacy Center staff is available to discuss additional campus support resources and basic need assistance. Students can contact our office to further discuss their individual needs. 

Students inquiring about alternate financial aid options (such as loans) are encouraged to contact BuckeyeLink directly. 

If you are an active F-1 or J-1 international student, please contact the Office of International Affairs at for grant information through the Office of International Affairs.
