The Foundation’s mission is to remove financial barriers to ensure student’s success. One of the Foundation’s core programs is providing emergency grants, textbook assistance, and educational support to students that are experiencing financial difficulties.
Emergency Grants/Textbook Assistance/Laptops
If you are a student experiencing an emergency situation that is a barrier to education, please have a faculty or an administrator complete the online referral form to be considered for emergency funding or textbook assistance. Emergency grants and textbook assistance funds range from $50 – $250. Requests are reviewed on the next available Tuesday and are limited to one student per semester.
Step 1 – Faculty or Administrator to complete a referral form for the student. Online form
Step 2 – Once approved, the student will receive a link to the emergency grant form, from the Foundation, via email.
If a student has received funding/laptop in previous semesters, they may not be eligible for emergency funds due to limited funding availability.
