Covid-19 Pandemic update: In order to determine if you meet the financial need eligibility guidelines, you must complete the Certification for Exceptional Financial Need (EFN) Form and submit it to your financial aid office for certification. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are aware that some universities do not currently have the staff capacity to certify EFN forms. For this reason we have extended the EFN deadline to May 31st and we can only receive your completed form via email (ugsp@od.nih.gov). You will be responsible for collecting and submitting the EFN Form. (updated 2-Apr-2020)
