Student Financial Resources

There are many university funding opportunities that may be available to GW students who are seeking support for various academic, professional, and/or personal needs. Please review the descriptions carefully, as not all opportunities are available for all students.

Please note this list is subject to change at any time and a limited amount of funds are available in a given year.  GW schools and departments should contact the Division of Student Affairs to update or add a funding opportunity on this list.

Student Financial Assistance (SFA) maintains a more complete list of emergency funds, and students are encouraged to reach out to SFA directly.
