COVID-19 Student Emergency Microgrants FAQ

Ohio University is making COVID-19 Student Emergency Microgrants available to help OHIO students who are experiencing financial difficulty due to COVID-19 and COVID-19 response measures. These funds are designated to help alleviate the short-term financial needs of students across all of OHIO’s campuses and are managed by the Office of the President in collaboration with the Office of the Provost, the Executive Dean of Regional Higher Education, the Dean of Students Office, and the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships. The COVID-19 Ohio University Student Support Fund is sustained by generous donors, and the grants awarded do not need to be repaid.

NOTE: Ohio University also continues to operate an Emergency Microgrants program to assist students (on the Athens Campus only) with needs NOT related COVID-19. Eligible students are encouraged to apply for microgrants (using the same application form) from that program if their need is not related to the current global pandemic.
