Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund has been established through the generosity of parent donors to provide financial assistance to undergraduate students who may find themselves in a circumstance where extra funds would help them deal with a temporary situation that would prevent them from completing their current semester of study at Baylor University. The fund is designed to meet a short-term financial need.

Applicants must currently be enrolled in the university at the undergraduate level and must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above. Funds are limited and are awarded on a need basis only.

Awards may include but are not limited to car repairs, medical expenses (not covered by insurance) and emergency or unexpected transportation costs. Typical expenses associated with attending college such as tuition, fees, books, rent and food do not qualify for a grant. However, if funds set aside for these purposes have been used to defray expenses caused by an unexpected occurrence consideration will be given for an award.

If you meet the qualifications to apply for an award from the emergency fund please visit our office on the 7th floor of the Clifton Robinson Tower to complete an application. Please bring with you copies of receipts and/or verification of amount(s) claimed. A personal interview is required with a member of our staff. Please contact Rebecca Chatham at (254)710-8545 to schedule your interview.

If you have any questions about the process for applying for emergency funds, please contact the Parents Network office at (254) 710-8545 or parentsnetwork@baylor.edu.
