Emergency Grants for UW-Stevens Point Students​

Resources Available for Emergency Funding

The pandemic may have disrupted your life and your academic career. There are a number of emergency funds available to UWSP students who qualify. We care about your financial wellbeing and want you to maximize any possible benefits available to you. See below for the steps to take in order to possibly receive additional financial assistance.

Addiitonally, if you or your family’s financial situation has changed significantly from what is reflected on your federal income tax return (for example, if you’ve lost a job or otherwise experienced a drop in income), you may be eligible to have your financial aid adjusted. If you have not already done so, complete the FAFSA questions as instructed on the application (including the transfer of tax return and income information), submit your FAFSA form, then complete the Financial Aid Appeal form.

Step 1

If you have not already done so, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to determine if there is financial aid available to help you with your expenses. If you are unable to file the FAFSA, please note that in the emergency grant application.
