Cyclone Success Assistance – Engineering Emergency/Completion Grant Funding

The College of Engineering has established funds to support students who have unexpected financial emergencies.

The funding is available on a first come, first serve basis with no guarantee of monetary award. University loan options may also be offered instead of grant/scholarship funding. Students who are 1-2 semesters away from graduating are given highest priority for funding. Freshmen, sophom*ores, and juniors will be considered on an exception basis. The amount will not exceed the amount of need stated by the student and is available only once per academic year with a maximum of two awards during students’ academic career at ISU.

  • An earned minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, and be in good academic standing
  • Majoring in an Engineering discipline
  • Senior in major program (freshmen, sophom*ores, and juniors considered on exception basis)
  • Must be experiencing a current financial crisis
  • Must have exhausted all other aid options
  • Evidence of working with Accounts Receivable Office or Office of Student Financial Aid to attempt to pay outstanding debt

An emergency* is defined as an occurrence out of the student’s control during a semester which threatens their ability to remain in school, including but not limited to:

  • Natural disaster
  • Unplanned disaster to self or immediate family
  • Injury or death of a family member
  • Catastrophic event impacting financial status
  • Or other demonstrable hardships you may be encountering as a result of the financial crisis you are currently experiencing
