Eligible, degree-seeking NKU students who are attending at least half-time and have a 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with NKU will be automatically considered for a Spring 2021 CRRSAA Emergency Grant. For full eligibility requirements, please see our FAQ.
In an effort to continue assisting students with the greatest financial need, the funds will be distributed prioritizing PELL-eligible students first, as outlined by Department of Education (DOE) guidance. We have estimated that we will be able to award more than 3,000 students with awards ranging from $100 to $1,565.
For questions about eligibility and awarding, you can contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org, at (513) 572-5143 or (888) 225-4499, or you can visit the NKU OneStop at AC 301.
We are here to assist you!
