Emergency Microgrants are designed to help OHIO students by providing financial support when they need assistance with unexpected, unforeseen, and unavoidable emergency short-term expenses surrounding situations such as accidents, illness death of a family member, fire damage, or a need for temporary housing. Currently enrolled students may apply for funds when they have exhausted all other resources (payment plans, additional student aid, assistance from family/friends, other personal resources). This funding is not intended to reimburse for expenses that have already been paid, to replace or supplement existing financial aid, or to serve as a debt diversion program.
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.
Review of emergency microgrants for fall 2022 semester will end on December 10th. Consideration for emergency microgrants for the spring 2023 semester will begin on January 17th.
*ATTENTION GRADUATE STUDENTS: The graduate student fund for Fall 2022 is depleted. We are not able to award any additional microgrants to graduate students this semester. If you need information on community resources you may be eligible for, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
