Student Emergency Grant Program

The purpose of the Student Emergency Grant Program is provide immediate assistance to a student with an exceptional and/or compelling need to prevent them from missing school or failing a class for one (or more) of the following reasons:
  • Not having a textbook
  • Lacking dependable transportation
  • Needing assistance with childcare
  • Currently or could become homeless
  • Unable to pay utilities
  • Without money to purchase food
Every effort will be made to assist the student with a long term, sustainable solution. However in case of an unexpected crisis, the student may apply for a Student Emergency Grant.

The student should write an essay explaining their situation, what they will do moving forward to address it, and provide a reference from a faculty or staff member.
Students must have completed at least one term with a minimum GPA of 2.0. 

A student can only apply for a Student Emergency Grant once per academic year. 

The Financial Aid Office will evaluate each Student Emergency Grant.

Student Emergency Grant funds range from $25 to $250 and are approved by the Foundation executive director and the Foundation chair.

A Student Emergency Grant is not expected to be paid back.
