Helping students through hardships

How much can I receive?
Parent and Family Services Director will make the determination on the approval of funding and the amount of funding. The value of the award may range in response to the needs of the student but does not typically exceed $500 and is limited to one award per NAU career. The fund is designated to help offset a short-term financial need and is not intended to replace or supplement financial aid.
Do I have to repay this funding?
Funds are awarded as a grant and do not need to be repaid. Funds may count as income and may be subject to federal and/or state taxes. Funds received will need to be reported on the appropriate year(s) Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
