Emergency Fund Program
Stanly Community College Foundation, via donations from faculty, staff, and the community, makes available limited funds to assist regularly enrolled students with nonacademic financial emergencies.
-The applicant must be a currently enrolled curriculum student (at least half-time) at SCC and attending classes in the semester of the request. Requests from occupational education students will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
-The student’s request for assistance needs to be directly related to what is necessary and appropriate for the student to be successful in completing their academic studies during current enrollment.
-Students must complete the SCC Foundation Emergency Fund Request form and provide/attach the past due bill. Students should allow at least five business days for processing after submitting the form. The bill must be currently dated and past due or within a week of becoming past due.
-Request for assistance will need to come from the following categories: utility bills (power, heating & water), rent, internet, and insurance. Note: Amounts from the student emergency fund will be paid directly to the creditor (ex. Duke Energy, City of Albemarle, etc.), not the student or student’s family/friends. Exceptions to this note will only be considered if the student can provide historical documentation.
Amount of Award: Amount of assistance will not exceed $300.00 per calendar year.
