Emergency Grants

Clark College offers a variety of local and state-funded financial resources to current students in crisis due to unexpected barriers which may otherwise prevent them from completing the term successfully.

The Emergency Grant Committee will reopen the application for completion during the upcoming fall 2022 term on October 3 @ 8:00 a.m.
Local and State funding allocated for support will be available to current students in crisis.

Due to an influx of student applicants each term, the Emergency Grant Committee reserves the right to close the application for student completion at any time, once a determination has been made that emergency grant funds have been exhausted.

Clark College offers emergency assistance to students who experience a financial emergency or unanticipated expenses that cause financial hardship. These funds are not loans and do not need to be repaid. When you fill out the universal emergency grant application, your application will be reviewed by the Emergency Grants Committee and, whenever possible, may be matched with the grant(s) best aligned with your needs/eligibility.

Clark College Emergency Grants

Clark College grants are funded by generous donors through the Clark College Foundation and county and state grant programs. They vary in eligibility requirements. Some emergency grants require expense documentation and pay the vendor directly. Awards typically range from $100-$2,000. Institutional emergency grants can affect financial aid packages. To check to see if your financial aid package would be affected, go to the Financial Aid tile in ctcLink:

  1. Click the current aid year
  2. Click Financial Aid Summary
  3. Check Remaining Need
  4. Your additional award request should not be more than your “Remaining Need” total
