Flexible support when urgent needs arise
As the past three years have shown, a well-established student support fund can make all the difference in the world when extraordinary circumstances put the student experience at risk. But hardships and difficulties can and do strike at any moment and threaten a student's progress toward academic success. Student support funds are a flexible resource that allows WSU to quickly respond to students' needs and to accommodate a broad range of impacts and circumstances.
Hardship support funds have been distributed to help students...
Purchase essential computers or technology after crashes or breakdowns
Cover the costs of unexpected child care needs
Cover the costs of groceries or home supplies
Travel home to be with an ill family member
When hardship arrives, we want to be sure that students don't have to sacrifice their educational goals to get through difficult times. You can help with a gift to a student hardship fund during #CougsGive.
