https://www.arin.net/fees/fee_schedule.html, very bottom, fee wavers.

In 2010 this is $625.  It was $312.50 last year, it will be $937.50
next year.  It was $0 in 2007 (full waver) and it was $125 in 2008.

Based on the original post it would have been a maximum of 312.50,
since the request happened in the past.  It might have been less,
depending on how far in the past.

I think the real moral of this story is the ARIN fee schdule page
is about as clear as mud.
