Centenary University Student Relief Fund

The student relief fund was created by the Staff Senate to assist enrolled students at Centenary experiencing an unanticipated financial hardship, which would interfere with the student’s ability to continue his/her education at Centenary University. Emergency funding is provided in the form of a one-time per year grant, and not required to be repaid.
