We know students sometimes encounter unforeseen events which can create financial emergencies. In response, thanks to generous donors, Utah Tech University (UT) has created the Struggling Student Fund to assist students in times of crisis. These funds do not need to be repaid and are intended to help students meet unforeseen financial emergencies, that might otherwise prevent them from continuing their education.
We understand that every student’s situation is unique and each request will be considered carefully and confidentially. Generally, funds will be within an average range of $50 to $2,500 per request and will be added to the student’s university account for disbursement. The number of students who can be served by the Struggling Student Fund depends on the availability of funds and the urgency of the situation.
