GCC students eligible for financial emergency assistance

Fall semester applications now being accepted

Posted

The Emergency Assistance Fund is now available for fall 2020 to Glendale Community College students.

Students can receive up to $200 assistance for emergency needs like books, car repair, transportation, food, school supplies, utilities and more.

The Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation Emergency Student Assistance fund was created to assist currently enrolled Maricopa Community College students with a short-term, unforeseen financial hardship or immediate expense that may impact their academic success.

Types of expenses covered (current semester expenses only) include required books, bus passes, car repairs, transportation, food, gas and school supplies.

To be eligible, students must be in good standing with the college (minimum 2.0 GPA), be enrolled in a minimum of three credit hours at any Maricopa Community College, and obtain a recommendation from a faculty/staff member who is aware of and can comment on the student’s need for emergency assistance.

Documentation associated with the emergency must be attached to the application (i.e., current utility bill, required book list, auto repair bill, etc.).

Complete and submit the online Emergency Assistance Fund Application here.

Clock and credit hour students, as well as out of state and undocumented students, are eligible to apply as long as they meet the above eligibility requirements.

Submission of the application does not guarantee funding. Funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.

Application deadline is Dec. 18, or until funds have been exhausted.
