Food Security grant

The Food Security grant is available to help students meet short-term, immediate needs. The grant is a $100 allotment on a Husky card intended for emergency assistance to purchase food from a UW Housing & Food Services facility. Eligibility is limited to currently enrolled students who have exhausted other funding options, including student loans, and have completed FAFSA or WASFA. Applicants will also talk with a financial aid counselor to see how they can help address long-term food security needs.
