Financial support for the unforeseen
The Student Emergency Fund assists Worcester State University students by providing limited emergency financial support when they need assistance with unexpected, unforeseen and unavoidable emergency circumstances that jeopardize their ability to successfully continue in school.
This funding is not intended to reimburse for expenses that have already been paid, or to replace or supplement existing financial aid. Award amounts typically range from $100 to $500. Decisions regarding amount and disbursement of funds are made on a case-by-case basis. Awards are not considered loans and do not require repayment. Some funds may be considered income and are therefore subject to federal taxes.
