The Emergency Aid Application is now open for students enrolled in summer classes. Note that you can only view the form if you are logged in with your WIU email. Emergency aid is given out in the form of a grant and need not be repaid. Applications will be accepted so long as funds are available. These emergency funds are administered as one-time awards and are not to be used for a current account balance. The fund can be used to meet a short-term financial need but is not designed to replace or supplement financial aid. Funding is made possible through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund via the CARES Act.
To assist the most students with limited funding, awards for Summer 2020 will be based on enrollment. The maximum award for Summer 2020 will be $500. This breakdown will allow us to assist the most students based on limiting funding.
