The “Pro Joe” Student Emergency Assistance Fund (SEAF) exists to provide limited emergency financial support to currently enrolled Texas Wesleyan University (TXWES) students who are otherwise unable to meet essential expenses due to a temporary or unexpected hardship.
Average awards range from $50 to $150, but will not be more than $500 per student per year. Decisions regarding the disbursement of SEAF monies are made on a case-by-case basis. These awards are not loans and do not require repayment. Some funds may be considered as income and, thus, are subject to federal income taxes.
