Emergency Funding

Emergency Funding Request

The Fontbonne Emergency Fund exists as a resource available for both full and part-time Fontbonne University students. Students who have exhausted every source of Institutional Financial Aid, yet have unforeseen expenses that threaten to impact their attendance and academic success are encouraged to apply. 

Application Process

Please fill out the application, linked below, completely.

The Fontbonne Emergency Fund Committee reviews all applications. The Office of Financial Aid will determine each applicant’s eligibility for additional funding. If additional information is needed, a committee member will contact you.

Once the application is received, the committee will contact you within 3 days to request a meeting or conversation about your request. Decisions will be made within 2 business days of meeting.

Since the amount available in The Fontbonne Emergency Fund can vary, the committee will make every effort to fund a portion of the requested amount.

Please indicate on the application if you are applying to purchase textbooks for classes at Fontbonne; if so, a voucher can be given to the applicant to use at the bookstore.

The committee reserves the right to deny funding to applicants who neglect to follow the instructions, or for whom information is missing.


Students cannot receiving funding if:

  • They are not enrolled for the current semester
  • They do not have a FAFSA on file
  • The request is for tuition, room and board and/or fee balances

Students may make funding requests for one-time unexpected or unanticipated financial needs, including but not limited to:

  • Textbooks
  • Food
  • Transportation Needs
  • Housing/Utility Bills
  • Personal Care Items
  • Health/Child Care Needs

In some circumstances, students will receive direct need donations.

HEERF Stimulus Funding

Congress passed three economic stimulus bills that allocated funds to higher education institutions. Originally known as the CARES Act when the first bill was signed these packages have now been renamed HEERF (Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds). The allocations were based on the institution’s enrollment of Federal Pell Grant recipients and the total number of students who do not receive this aid.
