Hutton Financial Emergency Fund
Up to $750

The purpose of the Hutton Financial Emergency Fund (hereinafter "Fund") is to address financial emergencies encountered by Hutton Honors College students. Financial emergencies might include, for example, urgent expenses related to housing, utilities, meals, transportation, car repairs, health care, or child care. Generally, candidates may not receive multiple or renewed aid from the Fund. Generally, students eligible for aid from the Fund will already qualify for need-based financial aid, and generally, candidates must have completed a Selective Scholarship Application. Only Hutton Honors College students who are engaged in full-time baccalaureate study at IUB at the time of applying to the Fund are eligible for aid from the Fund, and candidates must be in good academic standing in the Hutton Honors College which includes having a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 on a 4.00 scale. All awards from the fund must be spent directly on the emergency described in the application. Applicants should apply as soon as possible after encountering a financial emergency or in anticipation of such an emergency. The Hutton Honors College will consult with the IU Office of the Bursar and IU Office of Student Financial Assistance to determine the financial status of all applicants.

To apply, applicants must complete the application here by downloading it into a Word document and once it is complete, sending it, along with all other supporting documents you wish to include, as an attachment to Assistant Dean Lynn Cochran at An applicant will be notified within a few weeks after his/her application has been received.

All applicants must attach an unofficial IUB transcript to this application.

Important Note: If you are packaged with need-based federal financial aid (for example, Stafford loans, Pell grants), and you receive one of the HHC's grants, awards, scholarships, or prizes, it is possible that your award will not be paid-out in the form of cash or credit (i.e., as money paid into your Bursar account), but instead, may be used by IU's Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) to reduce your student loan burden. In addition: If you receive aid from the Hutton Financial Emergency Fund, you should have no fines (i.e. parking, library) posted to your Bursar Bill at the time the aid is posted to your Bursar account.

Please see the application for other possible limitations on awarding of emergency funds.
