College Visions Emergency Grant Fund
"It's no secret that financial hardships pose a huge barrier to degree attainment among first-generation low-income college students. In fact, it is one of the main reasons that many first-gen low-income students drop-out or stop-out of college each year. Although a growing number of higher education institutions are establishing emergency aid programs, they’re the minority and the funds are limited. The CV Emergency Grant is a powerful resource that enables us to support students with course materials such as textbooks and access codes, tuition balances, travel expenses, health costs, and other financial burdens. It further demonstrates to our students that we're here for them and we're committed to their success."
Susan Anderson, CSP Director & CV Alumni
Emergency grants help CV students see their path to a college degree.
We hope you’ll join us and invest in the next generation of young community leaders! With your help, we want to raise $3,000 by March 31st.
Your support provides:
Freshman $10 - Provides a "Good luck with finals!" care package for one college student.
Sophomore $25 - Giving at this level helps ease the cost of computer repair.
Junior $50 - 5 gifts at this level total $250. This will enable a daylong campus visit for a group of 12 high school seniors.
Senior $100 - Helps one college student buy a textbook. The money to pay for expensive, required textbooks is not always at hand, but you can change that for someone.
Associates $250 - Provides an emergency scholarship to a CV commuter student with bus passes for two semesters.
Bachelors - $500 - Enables workshops to assist over 385 students and families to renew financial aid forms.
