Emergency Grant Application

The Emergency Grant is designed to assist Washburn Tech students with unforeseen expenses for food, housing, course material, technology, health care, child care, or other as a result of COVID-19.  Applications will be reviewed at least once a week and selections will be made by a committee.  Award amounts may vary and are available on a first come first serve basis. 

Applicants must meet the following requirements

  • Completed FAFSA Washburn’s school code of 010689 and eligibility to receive title iv aid
  • Must meet basic eligibility criteria set by Federal Student Aid; https://studentaid.gov/understand-aid/eligibility/requirements
  • Enrollment in courses that experienced a disruption due to COVID-19
  • Complete the Emergency Grant application

The grant amount depends on enrollment, EFC from the FAFSA, and expenses incurred as a result of the disruption related to covid-19. 

Applicants for the Emergency Grant will receive an email notification to their Washburn email account after a determination has been made.  If approved, grant funds will be made available directly to the student and will not automatically be used to pay tuition charges or other balances at Washburn.  To expedite the process, we also encourage you to sign up for Direct Deposit.  If direct deposit has not been set up, a check will be mailed to your address on file.  Be sure to verify your address on MyWashburn. 

Please Submit the online form.
