COE Emergency Fund

The UCA College of Education Emergency Fund is a one-time award for COE students who experience an unexpected financial hardship or emergency. If you are NOT a College of Education student, you may apply for funding at: Student Support & Resources and UCA Foundation.

This is no application deadline. Scholarships are issued as funds are available and are awarded in amounts up to $250. Awards will be determined by the COE College Administrative Council and should be made within two weeks of applying for assistance.

This fund is supported by College of Education faculty, staff, alumni, and student contributions because we believe that everyone needs a little help at some point in their lives. We want to be there if this happens during a student’s time at UCA.
