Financial setbacks are a reality of adulthood.  For college students, unexpected financial emergencies could result in the added risk of withdrawal from the University.  UW-Whitewater has an emergency aid program to provide students with monetary aid to help them stay in school and graduate, which ultimately, should lead to a better financial future.

The Warhawk Emergency Fund awards up to $1,000 for eligible expenses such as child care, auto, medical, and food.  Interested students need to complete the online application process.  When approved, the monetary aid is usually available within 2 business days.

The Financial Literacy Center provides financial literacy education and resources to students who receive aid through the Warhawk Emergency Fund.  Students are encouraged to attend a group presentation or schedule an individual coaching session to receive these services.

For additional questions or information, students should contact the Warhawk Emergency Fund  (smithlb@uww.edu) or the Financial Literacy Center (finlit@uww.edu).
