Light the Way Emergency Fund

In celebration of the 125th anniversary of Seminary Hall, President Steve Turner issued a challenge to the Northeastern State University Centurions and President’s Circle donors to establish an emergency fund for NSU students in need. This new funding source is designed to assist students (undergraduate and graduate) during times of crisis in order for them to maintain their enrollment. It is designed to enable a student to meet a short-term financial hardship and is maintained by the Northeastern State University Foundation.
