Emergency Grants for UW-Green Bay Students

Resources Available for Emergency Funding

The pandemic has disrupted your life and your academic career. There are a number of emergency funds available to students who qualify. If you have not already, please fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid at www.fafsa.gov.  The first step in the emergency grant process is to determine if there is financial aid available to help you with your expenses. If you are not able to fill out the FAFSA, please apply for the emergency grant and let us know that in the application.

Select your main campus location to see your emergency funding options:

Grants Available to Additional Campus Students

Students attending the Manitowoc, Marinette, or Sheboygan campuses are able to apply for the following grants:

  • Additional Locations Emergency Grant
  • Phoenix Emergency Grant

We recommend students apply for the Additional Locations grant first, especially if your emergent needs include medical expenses, travel for a family emergency, replacement of things due to a fire and/or car repairs. However, if that does not cover your needs, you are still able to apply for the Phoenix Emergency Grant.

The Additional Location Emergency Grant can be used to cover unforeseen expenses such as:
  • Medical expenses
  • Travel expenses for a family emergency
  • Replacement of stolen items or items damaged by fire
  • Car repairs
