We know unexpected things can happen to good students. The Xavier Emergency Grant is one more way the University lives the Jesuit value of Cura Personalis and the Musketeer motto, "All For One."
Have you ever had an emergency?
If you responded yes to any of these questions, we have a solution for you. Xavier University received funding through the Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation and Affliates Dash Grant Program for student emergency grants. These funds are available to qualified students for a one-time occurrence over a two-year period (2017-2019).
Funding is limited to undergraduate students with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $7,000 or less, so you must submit the 2018-19 FAFSA to be considered. A student's Success Coach or Financial Aid Counselor can help them determine their family's EFC. The maximum grant amount is $1,000, and proof of the emergency is required. Award amounts are determined on a case-by- case basis.
