Financial Assistance

The Student Life Financial Assistance Program is an initiative within the Division of Student Affairs that assists students who may not have the financial means to attend or participate in University sponsored events, programs, or opportunities, especially Senior Week. 

This application is specifically for any student in the Class of 2019 that is in need of assistance for this year's Senior Week events. Once the application is submitted, a professional staff member within the Office of Student Engagement reviews it. Should this professional staff member need additional information, they will contact the student to set up a meeting to discuss their application. Please note that this is a confidential process, and that the decision determined by the office/department is final.

The deadline for all Senior Week Financial Assistance requests is Friday, April 26, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. 

 

All applicants will hear from the Office of Student Engagement by Friday, May 3, 2019 regarding the status of their application. Should applicants purchase tickets and then become informed that they have received financial assistance, they will be reimbursed.

Sponsor A Senior

The Office of Student Engagement invites you and/or your department to Sponsor a Senior Week ticket or Senior Week ticket package for a senior with high financial need!

Senior Week is a weeklong program that offers the graduating classes a final opportunity to strengthen friendships, reflect on their years together at Fairfield, and celebrates their accomplishments with faculty, staff and their families prior to graduation. This year’s Senior Week will consist of ten (10) different events taking place both on and off campus! The total Senior Week ticket package will cost students $350. Student Engagement’s Sponsor a Senior program, with contributions from faculty and staff, will allow high-need seniors to attend Senior Week events that they otherwise would not be able to attend.

The program works on a first-come, first-served basis for in-need seniors. For interested faculty and staff, there are two sponsoring options:

  1. You may contribute to the general Sponsor a Senior program (anonymously, if you wish). These funds will be used toward tickets for seniors who apply for the Student Life Financial Assistance Program and are deemed high-need.
  2. If there is a specific high-need senior you would like to sponsor, you may choose for your contribution to go toward that student’s ticket(s) (anonymously, if you wish). Should the senior being sponsored have purchased his or her Senior Week ticket(s) prior to being sponsored, we will refund them their full purchase price.

The Sponsor a Senior program is open to both individuals and departments that would like to contribute. 

The deadline for all Sponsor a Senior submissions is Friday, April 26, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. 

 

Sponsored seniors will hear from the Office of Student Engagement by Friday, May 3, 2019 regarding the status of their sponsorship.

If you have any questions, please contact:
