What is an emergency grant?
An emergency grant allows for students with unusual and unexpected temporary emergencies to apply for financial assistance. Examples include: car repairs, rent and utilities. An emergency grant cannot be used for tuition or textbooks. An emergency grant does not have to be repaid.
Who is eligible for an emergency grant?
Emergency grants are available to students who are currently enrolled at Ohio State Newark for at least six credit hours with a $0 balance owed for the current term. Grants are only available during the term the student is enrolled as a Newark campus student; emergency grants are not offered during breaks.
How do I apply for an emergency grant?
The Newark Emergency Grant Application is available online here. Applicants must clearly explain the emergency and why they are unable to provide their own funds. Documentation of the expense (i.e., estimate of car repair, utility shut-off notice, eviction notice, etc.) must be provided with the application.
