Eagles for Eagles
The Eagles for Eagles fund was started by Georgia Southern students for the sheer purpose of eagles helping eagles. Seeing students in need, our student leadership challenged their peers to raise money for those facing extreme financial hardships. Students may apply for a one-time financial award to help them during their time of need, which also helps ensure that they can remain enrolled and on track for graduation. The fund embodies what it means to be an Eagle.
