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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Financial Literacy Center (email@example.com).
