UW provides a centralized page with resources about emergency aid at https://www.washington.edu/emergencyaid/.
In Spring 2019 the Department of Biology established a loan fund for graduate students to assist with short-term emergencies with an emergency loan program. These loans are a maximum of $5000 for 12 months through the Department of Biology. The loans must be repaid by the 12 month due date, and they are interest-free if repaid on time.
There are 2 forms to be completed and signed that can be found below, the program information form and the loan approval form. A third form, the actual loan application form, needs to be obtained from the administrator. All 3 forms should be returned to the administrator. Please read the program information form carefully before signing and returning with the loan approval form and the loan application form.
