Emergency Grants

Life happens and COTC is committed to helping students stay in school. Students who are facing a temporary financial struggle may be eligible for financial assistance.

This emergency grant program provides financial assistance to students with an unexpected, unplanned temporary emergency. Established by Jane and William McConnell, the the McConnell Emergency Grant is a limited fund for currently enrolled students. The maximum grant amount is typically $500 and is awarded to an eligible student who is enrolled at least 6 credit hours and has unmet financial need at the time of application. In addition to completing the one page grant application, the applicant will be required to explain why they cannot provide their own funds and submit third-party documentation supporting the need for the grant.
