Emergency Aid When Life Happens, We’re There.

More than half of all students who drop out of college do so for financial reasons—often because of a small, unexpected setback at the wrong time. That’s why we believe in emergency aid.

A Vital Resource for Your Students.

Scholarship America’s Emergency Grant Assistance allows your school to provide students with emergency grants, alleviating unexpected financial burdens that otherwise could lead to dropping out.

“If I didn’t receive this help I’m not sure I could finish my semester without being behind or feeling as if I should just quit school and get a minimum wage job.”
Emergency Aid recipient, Clark State Community College
