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.

  • Be currently enrolled at UW-Green Bay as a degree-seeking, full-time or part-time undergraduate or graduate student

  • Have overdue tuition charges or having difficulties paying expenses
 

Application Process

Complete and submit the online application. Applications will be reviewed quickly and a decision will be made and communicated to you via your UW-Green Bay email within five business days of submission.
