Emergency Grant

Minnesota State University, Mankato is pleased to offer an Emergency Grant Program to current Minnesota State Mankato students.

What is an Emergency Grant?

Too often, financial emergencies spell the end of college for low-income students.

For many students, an unexpected car repair or a medical bill can mean the end of their college hopes. While typically not large expenses, they can be enough to put these students in a serious bind: stay in college or pay the bill. By quickly delivering small grants to students encountering unexpected expenses, Minnesota State University, Mankato helps more of these students stay in school and on track for degree completion.
