Student Emergency Funds

UW-Superior has been working diligently to share various forms of funds from the institution, from the federal government and from donors into the hands of students who need it as they deal with the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis. Here are some of the ways UW-Superior has already made a financial impact on students.

  • Income Continuation Program – UW-Superior has provided income continuation payouts to all student employees with active employment contracts effective March 14 or later. This payout was established to aid students who are no longer able to work at UW-Superior at all or in the capacity they originally anticipated this semester. This was paid out on May 7. For questions, please contact Brittany Hansen at studentemployment@uwsuper.edu.
  • CARES Act Relief – The Federal CARES Act relief designated a Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) for students who were studying in on-campus programs at the start of the COVID-19 crisis and who are eligible to receive federal financial aid. These funds are designated for eligible students facing additional “costs associated with significant changes to the delivery of instruction due to the coronavirus.” Eligibility is determined by the federal government. Eligible students received individualized instructions on how to apply for this funding through their UW-Superior email the week of April 27. For questions, please contact the Dean of Students Office at dos@uwsuper.eduHigher Education Emergency Fund Relief Reporting information
  • Emergency Grant Funding – UW-Superior has established institutional emergency grant funds that are available for students who were impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Since the HEERF funding has limited student eligibility, the remaining institutional emergency grant funds have been targeted to students who are not eligible for the CARES Act Relief aid, including international and online students. 

    Students who are not eligible for the CARES Act Relief have been sent an invitation to apply for Emergency Grant Funding through their UW-Superior email. Funds are very limited so if you haven’t applied, we encourage you to do so today. For questions, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at finaid@uwsuper.edu.
