Request for Student and Employee Support
UNCW’s Campus Emergency Fund provides limited, one-time emergency financial assistance to UNCW students and employees personally affected by Hurricane Florence. It is the intent of this fund to provide support for currently enrolled students who have exhausted all other resources. If Campus Emergency Funds are granted, they do not have to be repaid but they may count as income and be subject to federal and/or state taxes.
