One-time Emergency Grants of up to $500 are available for eligible students who are facing an unexpected, unanticipated event that can derail their Gateway Technical College graduation. As part of helping students to solve problems and reduce their barriers to succeeding at Gateway, students are required to visit with a Student Finance Specialist at Gateway prior to submitting an application and being considered for funding. As one potential way to work through the emergency, students may apply for an Emergency Grant from the Student Emergency Fund. Documentation of the costs along with the correct, typed name of the company to be paid are required. If approved, the one-time grant provides direct payment to third parties to cover the cost of books, tuition or fees or other expenses required to complete their education.
Appointments with a Student Finance Specialist can be made via the Contact Center at 1-800-247-7122.
Emergency grant applications are accepted after financial aid awards have been disbursed and during the current semester.
