Students who experience unexpected financial hardship may be eligible for “emergency” financial aid from UW and/or SoN. Students are encouraged to first apply for UW Emergency Aid. UW Emergency Aid is available to all students; there are no residency requirements or other restrictions. Eligible students should also consider requesting a change to existing financial aid packages.
Next, students should apply for SoN Emergency Financial Aid. Award amounts vary, but are typically a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Awards may include scholarships and/or student loans borrowed directly from the School. These awards are intended to be used in the current academic quarter, but requests for up to one quarter in the future may be considered.
Requests for emergency aid should not replace annual applications for SoN scholarships or UW financial aid.
