Emergency Assistance

Several of our partner colleges offer emergency grant funding if you find yourself in serious needs for things like food, housing, bills, vehicle repairs, or other emergency issues.

Each college has different guidelines on how to receive these funds and/or who is eligible for them, but if you find yourself in need, we strongly encourage you to submit an application and try to get the funding needed to keep emergency impediments from derailing your pursuit.
