HEERF III funding:
The University of New Orleans Fund Application
The University of New Orleans has established the COVID-19 Student Fund to assist students with emergency financial need as it relates to the coronavirus (COVID-19). The intent of the funding from HEERF III is to assist eligible UNO students with tuition, fees, and other expenses as it relates to temporary financial hardships caused by the ongoing COVID outbreak.
Pell Grant recipients do not need to complete the application process. Pell Grant recipients who are at least half-time in enrollment will automatically be reviewed for the available funding based on their EFC, remaining need, enrollment hours, and funding availability. For all other students, applicants must meet the follow criteria to apply for the funding:
- Be an UNO degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student
- Complete the online HEERF III Application
- Have a completed 2022-2023 FASFA* on file (you do not have to meet eligibility requirements for federal student aid, i.e. SAP, defaulted loan, overpayment, etc.). *International students will be reviewed based on their financial information on file with UNO and the HEERF III application.
- Have remaining need based on your CoA (budget) and FAFSA results for the fall semester
UNO students may apply once during the fall semester using this application process. The applications will be reviewed based on the student’s need, enrollment hours, and funding availability. All awarding decisions are final. The grant will not be processed to the students’ UNO account until after fall registration ends.
