The CU Boulder Student Relief Fund Emergency Grant is designed to assist enrolled students with a financial emergency in the current term that is impacting their ability to stay on track towards graduation. Students must be either in danger of withdrawing due to an unexpected, temporary financial hardship resulting from an emergency or crisis situation; or struggling with debilitating financial circumstances which may impede their academic progress and ability to complete classes. The emergency grant is only available to students who face a legal barrier to accessing federal or state financial aid. The costs must have been incurred while enrolled at CU Boulder; costs for a future academic year will not be considered.
Emergency funding is provided in the form of one-time per year awards. It is not intended to provide ongoing relief for recurring expenses. These awards are grants and do not need to be repaid.
The value of the award will range in response to the needs of the student but does not typically exceed $1,000.
Students who fall under the Colorado Advancing Students for a Stronger Economy Tomorrow (ASSET) Bill or have a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status will receive preference.
