Apply for Emergency Funding

Get help with unexpected emergency expenses

All IUB students (undergraduate, graduate, domestic, international, DACA, etc.) may apply for emergency funding from the Division of Student Affairs. We review applications in the order they are received.

If you are facing a financial hardship related to the COVID-19 pandemic or a financial hardship that is a one time, urgent, and unexpected financial difficulty that is impacting your ability to remain enrolled at IUB, you may be able to get some emergency funding from the Division of Student Affairs.

Application process

  1. Complete the emergency funding request form below.
  2. Monitor your IU email in case a staff member from the Division of Student Affairs needs to discuss your application as well as how additional campus and community resources may be helpful.
  3. Make sure you have set up Direct Deposit of Bursar Refunds in one.iu.edu
  4. If you are awarded HEERF III emergency funding, the award notification email will include a link to the online form to request the award be applied to your Bursar balance instead of refunded to you via Direct Deposit of Bursar Refunds. If you do not want this federal emergency funding award to be applied to your Bursar balance, no action is required other than making sure your Direct Deposit of Bursar Refunds is set up to receive the award via the Bursar refund.
