In response to the rapidly-changing situation and to help our students in need during this unprecedented time, NKU has created the COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund, supported by the generosity of our donors.

Student may recieve up to a $400 award based on their application.

Applicants must be enrolled at least ½ time during Spring 2021 (undergraduate, graduate), in good academic standing, and share information about financial hardship related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the disruption of your NKU education.

To learn more about the students who have been awarded money from this fund, please visit the Student Emergency Fund success stories website.


SEF Applicants are encouraged to be as specific and detailed as possible in their applications to ensure appropriate consideration of their circumstances and the possible impact of an SEF award on their persistence at NKU.
