Is there a maximum amount?

Please apply for what you need to meet the expenses of your hardship. Because there are multiple sources of funds, we will analyze the best way in which to assist you. We cannot guarantee that we can meet your full request.

How much will I receive?

The College received a limited amount of funds. Grant amounts will be determined based on the number of applications received and the specific needs presented in the application. We cannot guarantee that all applications submitted will be eligible for funding.

How do I receive the money?
