UE Student Emergency Fund

The UE Student Emergency Fund is designed to provide temporary, short-term financial assistance to students who are striving to balance demanding academic requirements while struggling with debilitating financial circumstances. Provided as a one-time award, the emergency fund is not a loan that students must repay. The funding is not intended to provide relief for ongoing expenses, nor is the primary purpose to fund educational expenses owed to UE. The fund is meant to recognize that a financial situation may put a student in jeopardy of continued enrollment at the University of Evansville. Each student’s circumstance is carefully considered by the UE Student Emergency Fund Committee, and shared information is confidential.
