The Student Emergency Fund was established to help students who encounter an unforeseen financial emergency or event that would otherwise prevent them from continuing their education at Bowling Green State University. Unexpected expenses like a large medical bill, car repair or replacing a stolen laptop force students to make difficult choices that can derail their goal of earning a degree from Bowling Green State University.
The Student Emergency Fund can provide one-time financial support to those who meet the following criteria.
A currently enrolled BGSU student
A minimum 2.0 GPA
Experience an emergency situation that jeopardizes their continuation as a student
To determine a student’s eligibility for support from the Student Emergency Fund, an application must be completed through the Office of the Dean of Students. This application can be found online at the Office of the Dean of Students website under the Support and Guidance tab. These funds are not intended to be used for non-essential expenses or expenditures resulting from poor financial management.
