Emergency financial assistance is available for eligible Peninsula College students.
UPDATE: While there are still HEERF/CARES Institutional funds, the HEERF/CARES student funds have been exhausted. The application is still open for other possible funding options such as the Student Emergency Assistance Grant (SEAG) and the Finish Line Fund.
To see if you qualify, apply here. You will be contacted about your application and potential next steps as soon as possible.
Where the money comes from:
Peninsula College Foundation's Finish Line Fund provides financial assistance to students who are within 20 credits of completing their certificate or degree and are experiencing financial hardship. Additional emergency funding may also be available for students who are earlier in their program of study.
United Way Get-It-Done Fund helps students who encounter a financial barrier while completing their high school credential. The fund is made possible by United Way.
Student Emergency Assistance Grant funds come from the state of Washington, and may help degree- and certificate-seeking students who experience financial emergencies or urgent circumstances such as paying a utility or internet bill, buying some groceries, fueling a vehicle, or supplementing a rent payment. Funds go directly to students. To apply, submit an emergency funding application. (If you have already submitted one for HEERF funding, then submit another to be considered for SEAG.) Awards are first come, first served while funding is available and are limited to one award per student per quarter.
