The College of Arts and Sciences, through the generosity of several donors, has established a fund to provide critical financial support for students who are near graduation, but – due to an unexpected financial crisis – may be unable to graduate. Any student who requires critical financial support in order to earn their degree is encouraged to apply for funding. Preference based on class rank is given to those students who have no more than three semesters remaining until they are able to graduate.
The Fund is administered by the College of Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Education Awards Committee. The committee works in close collaboration with the Office of Financial Aid to confirm need and coordinate the overall financial aid for the recipients. Preference is also given to applications who have completed a higher number of academic credit hours to prevent complications with financial aid. University faculty and staff are encouraged to recommend students whom they believe would qualify.
Recipients are required to meet with their academic counselors to ensure that their academic requirements are met.
Recipients must account for the disposition of the funds and provide a timely report on how the funds assisted them in insuring graduation or accomplishing other academic achievement. In addition, the recipients are required to meet with the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education to keep her/him apprised of their progress throughout their funding.
