New Resources Available for Emergency Funding

To meet the minimum requirements for any emergency funding, students must be: 

  • Enrolled at UW-Green Bay as a degree-seeking, full-time or part-time undergraduate or graduate student for the Spring or Summer 2020 semester
  • Experiencing unexpected financial hardship 

Who Should Apply?

All students who are having financial difficulties are encouraged to complete this request because UW-Green Bay has multiple sources for funding, but please note that funding from the federal CARES Act, specifically, requires that additional criteria be met, including:
  • The completion of a 2019-20 or 2020-21 FAFSA (Federal Application for Student Aid) and meeting all financial aid eligibility requirements for the Spring or Summer 2020 semester
