You May Qualify for Emergency Funds (Student Communication)

Hello Weber State Students,

We want you to know that in addition to WSU’s formula-based, automatic federal CARES Act funding for students, there is a separate process with a smaller amount of funds designed to meet some of the emergency needs of students now. These emergency funds may be available for students who suffered expenses due to the disruption of campus operations during the spring semester. Some private funding may also be available to those who do not qualify for FAFSA, including undocumented and international students. Students may apply via an online form by 11:59 p.m. June 12, 2020 for amounts between $100 and $500.

Students who receive emergency funding will be notified via their WSU email account by June 30. If the student has signed up for direct deposit, the funds will go to the student’s bank account. Otherwise, the student will receive a check sent to the current mailing address on file with WSU. Students will be notified in email if the awarded funding is from private donors. Learn more about CARES Act and emergency funding.
