Mountaineer Emergency Grants for Students

Students who are facing financial challenges and/or financial expenses may apply for financial assistance through the Mountaineer Emergency Fund or the Mountaineer Emergency Fund CARES Act Supplement.

This funding is not a loan and does not need to be repaid.

Please know that funds are not transferred to your account immediately and can take 3-5 business days to process once approved. If you are approved, funds may appear to decrease your current outstanding bill with App State. This is a temporary accounting effect of processing your grant funds through Student Accounts, and the funding will be refunded directly to you in the next refund cycle in 3-5 business days. 

We encourage students who are in need of further assistance to reach out to Case Management while we are processing your request, as other sources of support and assistance may be available.

Should you need to submit more than one request, a Case Manager may request to schedule a time to discuss your request further.
