Skyhawk Emergency Grant

Fort Lewis College is committed to helping our enrolled students reach their full potential and persist in school through graduation.

Sometimes unexpected expenses arise which make it difficult for students to concentrate on academics. It is important to note here that your college bill is not an UNEXPECTED expense and will not qualify. Unexpected expenses could be car repairs, emergency medical bills, or something out of the ordinary that you did not expect to happen. As necessary precautions are being taken at the College in response to COVID-19, many students are suddenly facing a different set of challenges, including the inability to secure housing, afford basic needs, find access to resources for online learning, and more. In order to qualify, you must be a current student taking courses currently at Fort Lewis College.

In these situations, the Fort Lewis College Foundation may be able to help students cover these expenses with a one-time grant thanks to generous gifts from donor(s). To be eligible to apply for this grant, students must have utilized all available funding sources. Contact Financial Aid (970-247-7142/ for more information on options. When grant requests are reviewed, a student’s financial, academic and disciplinary records will be considered as well as a student’s course load and degree-seeking status.
