Meyerson Student Fund

Through these targeted efforts and support, the Fund will help Liberal Arts students successfully pursue and reach their educational goals.

Awards are typically one-time and determined on a case-by-case basis. Awards do not require repayment and amounts may range from $100 to $500. Receiving an award from one fund does not prohibit eligibility for the other.
