UW Bothell Grants

The CARE Team services:

The CARE Team's goal is to create a user-friendly experience for our community while providing student support from the appropriate campus experts. We strive to provide private, proactive and supportive consultation, assessment, response, and education regarding students who may be in distress or at risk.

If you are experiencing a financial struggle or crisis, you may be eligible for a $1000 emergency grant through the CARE Team to help cover a variety of one-time/short-term expenses. To apply for an emergency grant, you can fill out the report linked on the CARE Team page and select 'Emergency Funds' in the form. You will need to have copies of receipts or bill statements prepared in order to fully complete an application.

If you would like to apply for an emergency grant and want help or have questions, schedule an appointment with the Benefits Hub: benefitshub.setmore.com
