Auburn University has received $7,822,873 to be used for emergency student funding under the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERFII) - Section 314(e) of the 2021 Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA). 

As of March 29, 2021, Auburn University has received and distributed $7,822,873 to eligible students under Section 314(e) of the 2021 Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA).

Based on completed 2020-21 FAFSAs, there were approximately 13,000 students at Auburn University who were potentially eligible for HEERF II emergency student funding. 

As of March 29, 2021, the total number of eligible students who have applied for and received an emergency financial aid grant under HEERF II is 5,636.  All available funds have been distributed as of March 29, 2021.

The method used by Auburn University to determine which students received emergency funding under Section 314(e) of the 2021 Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA)  was an online application.  Preference was given to students with highest need according to 2020-21 FAFSA.  Awards were determined by level of Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and ranged between $900 and $1500 per student.  The application was closed on March 29, 2021.

Emails were sent to potentially eligible Auburn University students who were enrolled for spring 2021 to inform them of the funding application.  These emails were sent to students with highest need as determined by the 2020-21 FAFSA.  The emails provided basic eligibility criteria and a link to the application.  The availability of the funding application was also communicated via This Week@Auburn e-newsletter that is distributed to all AU students, and The Auburn Plainsman.
