Always check with your department too to inquire about funds for academic-related expenses, including conference-related travel, or even emergency funds if you are experiencing an emergency hardship. Many departments have their own emergency funds, or can help advise in emergency situations to support their students as well.
Another alternative to get you through a temporary rough spot are COGS Short Term Loans.
