Process for Determining Award
Decisions on awards will be made by a Law Center Emergency Grant Committee appointed by the Dean. Emergency grants from the fund will be made on a timely basis once approval has been recommended by the Committee. The Committee will seek clarification of applicants, as necessary. The awards will be made through the LSU Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
Note: Students cannot obtain funds from both LSU’s Student Emergency Support Fund and this fund at the same time.
Please note that if the applicant has already borrowed the maximum allowable financial aid, as determined by the LSU Financial Aid Office, a grant from this fund may lower the amount a student may borrow in the future if the applicant’s Cost of Attendance is not able to be adjusted.
It is important for each student to contact the LSU Financial Aid office to verify status and impact on existing and future educational loans before accepting this grant.
