Emergency Microgrants


Ohio University is making COVID-19 Student Emergency Microgrants available to help OHIO students who are experiencing financial difficulty due to COVID-19 and COVID-19 response measures.


COVID-19 Microgrants


Please note: We are currently processing both COVID-19-related and unrelated Emergency Microgrants applications using the COVID-19 Microgrant Emergency Fund form. Eligible students are encouraged to apply for microgrants using the same application form in the link above if their need is not related to the current global pandemic.


Emergency Microgrants are designed to help OHIO students facing financial difficulty due to emergency situations or one-time hardships. The funds are awarded to help alleviate short-term financial need and are managed by the Dean of Students Office in collaboration with Student Financial Aid and Scholarships. This fund is sustained through generous gifts of donors, and grants awarded do not need to be repaid.
