University of Utah Emergency Funds Application

The Student Emergency Fund application at the University of Utah is available to help students apply for financial assistance and is intended to help minimize an unforeseen financial barrier that may arise from emergency situations. Funding is limited and awarded amounts will vary as it depends on students’ individual financial need and cost of attendance. Availability is subject to other federal, state, and institutional aid awarded. Generally, applicants should accept all other sources of funding, including their federal aid, before applying. Students must be enrolled for the Fall 2022 semester and may only apply for emergency funding once per semester.
