The WSU Student Hardship Fund offers a lifeline for students struggling to meet the costs of higher education. With over 40% of our enrollment being first generation students, when money is tight, any unexpected additional cost can push a student into severe financial difficulty.
The Student Hardship Fund will provide immediate support to students due to a bereavement, illness or unexpected costs due to unforeseen circumstances. For these students, even the smallest setback can cause a temporary or permanent break in their studies—making graduating nearly impossible. With your support, we can ensure that no student is forced to compromise their studies.
