There are a few different emergency grant programs available throughout the University of Hawaiʻi system. This includes the Urgent Student Relief Fund, various Campus Emergency Aid programs, all funded by the generosity of private, often individual donors, and the Coronoavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) grant funded by the federal government. This application portal is used for some of these programs using a common application. Your home campus may have a different application process for emergency grants so we encourage you to contact the Vice Chancellor for Students or Dean of Students at your home campus for more information.
The University of Hawaiʻi system also encourages students to access the UH Student Basic Needs site. This site allows UH students at the 10 campuses statewide to access basic needs—both on and off campus—including food and housing, childcare, mental health services, financial resources and transportation, among others.
