Thanks to the Federal CARES Act, SCTCC has grants available to help students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Types of grants available
- Eligible students enrolled with us on March 6, 2020 qualify for a $150 grant. SCTCC will send checks or direct deposit into students' accounts on May 15. You don’t even have to apply - they will automatically be sent via direct deposit if you have it set up or sent via mailed check.
- Expected family contribution was a factor, and if students qualified for Pell Grant or during the Spring 2020 semester, they will be sent an additional grant based on how many credits they took in Spring.
- Finally, if students have unforeseen financial difficulties, they can apply for an additional grant. The application for the Emergency CARES Grant will be available May 15, 2020.
Grant funds are flexible and can be used for everything from rent and food to health care and childcare.
Starting Wednesday, May 13, students will be able to see their CARES grant award in eServices under bills and payment. Students are only eligible for a base award from one institution.
