Summer Expectation Replacement Grant (SERG)

Domestic students who receive financial aid will be eligible to receive a $500 reduction in their summer expectation if: 1) they are funded through Lynk UAF, 2) they are domestic students on financial aid, and 3) their total family contribution in the preceding academic year was less than $10,000. The family contribution is the amount that your family is expected to pay each year after need-based financial aid is awarded. The $500 award, provided automatically to qualified Lynk UAF participants, is divided by semester and credited to your account in Financial Services in the fall and spring following confirmation of your successful project completion. We hope this will help make it possible for all students to seek and accept important research, study, or internship opportunities.
