NU Fund To Help Those Facing Financial Problems

The University of Nebraska plans to set aside $1.2 million to help students who face unexpected financial problems.

If the Regents approve on June 12, the money will be used to offer financial aid to students who experience a job loss or other financial problem in the family.

NU President J.B. Milliken says during recessions students often experience financial problems at times after normal financial aid awards have been made.

Setting aside this money would allow the university to help students with unexpected needs. Students at any of Nebraska's campuses would be able to apply for help from the fund.

To be eligible, students must provide evidence of financial hardship and have exhausted all other financial aid options.
