How It Works
The Emergency Aid Fund application process opens the first day of each semester and closes the last day of each semester. To apply for emergency funds, download the Edquity's mobile app or visit the website.
Your application will be reviewed. If you qualify, you will receive cash grant assistance within 72 hours.
The Edquity technology also offers you an index of emergency resources and ongoing budgeting tools to help you preempt potential challenges. Edquity is developing agreements with national vendors, such as extended stay hotels and car repair shops, to provide access to reduced-fee services at an accelerated rate.
Who Can Apply?
- All enrolled students are eligible to apply.
- You can apply once per semester.
- You must have a valid student ID.
- You can apply regardless of your citizenship status in the U.S.
How Do I Sign up?
You can find the Edquity app in the
App Store or
Google Play, and you can also
apply online. Simply download the app or head on over to the website and follow the instructions on how to get started. The application shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to fill out. You don't have to worry about writing answers or finding references. The only thing you need is your student ID.
How Long Will It Take to Get My Funds?
Funds are meant to support those who experience a financial emergency that interferes with you finishing college. You will know within 72 hours if you are approved to receive emergency aid.
Do I Have to Pay Back My Aid?
No, emergency aid does not require repayment and will not interfere with your current financial aid. If your situation changes, feel free to donate your fund to support other students.
