Emergency Funds

When unexpected hardships arise, Portland State aspires to support you so that you can persist as a student and maximize your learning. Below is information regarding limited emergency funds for which you may be eligible. Please note that, if awarded, some hardship funds are taxable.

Other Portland State University Funds

In addition to the General Student Emergency Fund, there are also funds that are retained and managed in many of the schools, colleges, and resource centers. These funds are available for enrolled students who participate in those programs. Please contact these departments directly in order to learn more about the availability of these funds.

Donate to Emergency Funds at PSU

Without donor support, we would not be able to support students when pressing or unexpected expenses threaten to unravel everything they have worked for. If you are interested in providing monetary support to build up emergency funds at PSU, please visit the PSU Foundation page to get started.
