[Garden City, KS] November 15, 2021 -- Garden City Community College will distribute federal funding of up to $350 per student during the Spring 2022 term at GCCC.  This emergency grant funding is from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III (HEERF III) to alleviate students' financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The disbursement from the U.S. Department of Education is intended to reach as many students as possible and assist with expenses related to the pandemic, such as but not limited to tuition, fees, food, housing, health care, mental health care, transportation, childcare, or other circumstances.  Garden City Community College is required to prioritize grants to students demonstrating exceptional financial need.  

The online application will be available on the GCCC website beginning January 3, 2022.  The application link will be sent to students' emails, shared on GCCC social media accounts and the GCCC student app, and posted on the GCCC website home page.  Only one application per student per term is permitted and must be submitted through the online form.   

Applications will be reviewed beginning the week of January 17th.  Funding will be distributed within two weeks of application review.  Students may request up to $350 to assist with the cost of attendance and/or emergency expenses as listed above.     

GCCC students who receive this grant will have the option to apply the funds directly to their Spring 2022 balance or by check.  A refund will be processed if the account has a credit balance.
