Our most vulnerable students need your support. The University of Montana Emergency Student Support Fund was established to help enrolled students meet their basic needs by alleviating unexpected financial hardship.

Resources offered through the fund are made available through the generous donations of family, friends and alumni of the University of Montana. 

Students who cannot afford essential needs such as making rent payments, purchasing necessary prescriptions, ordering course materials or paying for an emergency medical procedure, may receive short-term assistance from the fund. The resources are intended to provide financial assistance to current University of Montana students only. For details about student qualifications, contact the UM Financial Aid Office at faid@mso.umt.edu.

Your support is critical to student safety and academic success. Your gift helps cover costs such as:  

  • Technology and connectivity needs related to distance learning
  • Books and other instructional expenses
  • Tuition and instructional fees
  • Housing, rent and utilities
  • Food and groceries
  • Transportation
  • Medical and dental bills
  • Childcare
  • Other emergency or unforeseen circumstances

Generations of Grizzlies and UM supporters have taken care of each other and have built a strong, supportive community. Thank you for being a part of this community.

Thank you for your gift.
