How do I get emergency funding?

There are two foundation scholarships to help students who find themselves in a situation that impacts their ability to complete their degree at Troy University.

 

Wilson-Williams Student Emergency Fund

Qualifications and Procedures

Description

The purpose of the Fund is to help students who find themselves in a situation that impacts their ability to complete their degree at Troy University when a monetary gift (typically $750 or less) can help them overcome the issue(s) they face.

Qualifications

Funds will be available to any Troy University student on the Troy campus, with preference given to working students, military veterans and students who have a parent who works in law enforcement.

Procedure

Students must be referred to the Office of the Dean of Student Services to be considered for an award from the Fund.  They must then fill out an application (see attached form) with appropriate documentation of their particular need.  A committee composed of the Dean of Student Services and two other student services personnel selected by the Dean and approved by the donors of their heirs/designees will determine which applications are funded. Donors will also have input into the application process.  Applications will be acted on as soon as possible; generally within 48 hours.

Possible Expenses Covered by the Fund

  • Emergency Medical Expenses**
  • Expenses related to housing, including rent expenses
  • Emergency transportation repair expenses which directly related to the student’s ability to get to school and work
  • Recovery expenses from being the victim of fire, accident, theft or any illegal occurrence while attending school
  • Any temporary need that is deemed necessary by the committee that directly impacts whether a student can remain in school to successfully complete a degree

This Fund is NOT intended for the following:

  • Books and tuition
  • Travel
  • Non-emergency medical treatment or medications
  • Any non-emergency situation which does not directly impact the student’s ability to remain in school or complete a degree

**No benefits will be paid from any need arising due to the student’s use of alcohol, drugs or any illegal activity.
