The Scott E. Evenbeck Emergency Fund was established to assist students who are dealing with challenges that pose significant threat to successfully completing a semester. As such, funds are provided for emergency necessities such as housing, food and transportation rather than educational expenses such as books and fees. The total amount of financial assistance offered through this program is very limited and available only in $50 increments up to $300. In all cases, students are expected to have worked through other options before being awarded funds through this emergency fund. Allocated funds are a grant and are not expected to be repaid; students are highly encouraged to make a contribution back to the fund when they have the financial means to do so.
If you are a student interested in applying for this assistance, please review the guidelines and process.
Emergency fund guidelines
In order to be eligible for consideration, you must:
- Be a University College student as recorded in the IU Student Information System.
- Be enrolled during the term in which you are seeking financial assistance; emergency funds are not available to pay outstanding balances or be awarded in anticipation of financial hardship in future semesters.
- Show indications of your potential to successfully complete the term of enrollment. You do not have to be in good academic standing to be eligible for emergency funds.
- Have exhausted all other options for assistance including, but not limited to, financial aid appeals and community services.
- Agree to participate in programs and services designed to assist you in overcoming whatever challenge you face; very few of the difficulties faced by a student in need of emergency funds will be solved by money alone.
- Not have been granted emergency funds previously.
- Sign a confidentiality agreement stating you will not disclose the fact that you have received emergency funds through University College.
