Auburn University received an additional $20.5 million in federal emergency student funding, according to a University email on Tuesday. The funds, sent from the U.S. Department of Education, are meant to address COVID-19-related expenses.
The funds are the third round of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund that Auburn has received.
Aid will be provided to students based on exceptional need as determined by the 2021-22 Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The application for funds will remain open until the funds are spent.
The University anticipates a large volume of applicants and hopes to fund eligible students within 10 business days of their application submission.
Students can apply through the University's HEERF III application.
