Apply for a grant

If you are experiencing a personal financial hardship related to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can apply for a grant for financial assistance. OHSU Members are expected to provide truthful and accurate information. If OHSU or EAF discovers any information in the application to be materially untrue or fraudulent, the applicant may no longer expect the application to be treated confidentially and should also recognize that information provided may be reported to OHSU. Resources are finite. Some applications may not be awarded.

The Emergency Assistance Foundation, Inc. administers all fund activities, and when needed assist applicants with their grant applications. Oregon Health & Science University will not have any insight into the grant process unless a grant recipient chooses to share his or her story.
