Emergency Funding

The Emergency Fund has been exhausted for Spring Quarter 2022. Please contact 2-1-1 for other emergency funding. 

We know that unexpected expenses and emergencies can create a barrier to remaining enrolled in school and completing your program of study at Seattle Central College. The Emergency Grant is intended as one-time financial assistance to provide temporary, partial relief to address an immediate unforeseen or imminent financial hardship that will affect a student's ability to persist in school. Applications are reviewed by a committee and not all students who apply will be eligible to receive Emergency Grant funds. 

How to Get Started

1. First sign up (first time logging in) or sign-in by using an email address and creating a password on the Emergency Funds application page.

2. After completing your general profile, make sure to fill out the application for Emergency Funds (look for "Seattle Central College Emergency Funds - Central Students ONLY" in the list of opportunities).

3. Please attach supporting documentation for the expenses you need help with. Documentation should demonstrate an unexpected financial need or loss that has a dollar value; transcripts, class schedules, or spending plans are not sufficient evidence of financial need.

4. Completed applications will be reviewed, and applicants will be contacted by Student Support Programs.
