Emergency Relief Fund

SCC Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund

Stanly Community College received federal grants under the CARES Act to provide students impacted by COVID-19 with monetary assistance. The CARES Act has placed specific restrictions on who is eligible to receive CARES Act funding. The fund is limited, and guidelines will apply to prioritize student needs. These funds have been expended but there is limited SCC Foundation funding available.

Students who were enrolled at SCC prior to March 13, 2020 and have had financial issues due to COVID-19 may apply.

The following expenses may be eligible:

  • Food
  • Housing
  • Course materials
  • Technology
  • Healthcare
  • Childcare
  • Other

Your privacy is important to us. Application materials are highly confidential. Very few college employees review applications in order to maintain student privacy

How do you access the funds? Follow these steps:

  • Complete and submit the application describing how COVID-19 has affected you financially.
  • You will receive an email at your SCC student account (username@scc.stanly.edu) of any amount awarded.
  • If you are rewarded funding, you will be issued a paper check mailed to the address on your application (about 3-5 business days)

If you have questions, please contact Student Financial Support Services at tdunlap7925@stanly.edu
