Emergency Aid

The UW Bothell understands that life can be unpredictable. When unplanned and unexpected costs arise, they can cause undue stress and impact a student’s academic success and personal well-being. It is UW Bothell’s hope that we can provide emergency assistance to help support our students during these moments of crisis.

The UW Bothell may be able to provide some emergency assistance to support currently enrolled UW Bothell students. Our funds can assist with unexpected, unavoidable, and unplanned expenses such as accidents, illness, fire/water damage, or a need for emergency housing and food. The emergency aid may come in form of a grant and/or a student loan.
