Student Emergency Fund
The Ohio State University provides emergency financial assistance to students who may otherwise be at risk of dropping out of the university due to an unexpected, unplanned financial emergency.
We are accepting applications and may award up to $1,000 to eligible students. Resources are limited and students may only receive funding once per academic year. We cannot assist with university expenses like tuition or student health insurance.
Graduate students should use the application linked below to apply for emergency assistance. In addition, they may contact the Student Advocacy Center directly to discuss their specific situation. The Student Advocacy Center can also help students identify other university and community resources which may be able to help or supplement other assistance.
