Student Emergency Grant Fund

Special Notice:

Sinclair Community College has been very fortunate to have received Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) funding over the past couple of years to assist our students financially during the height of the COVID pandemic through Emergency Grants and special Financial Aid funding. The HEERF funds have now been exhausted.

Student Affairs will continue to help with food insecurities through our Student Food Pantry, and staff will be available to help find alternative community resources to help address needs.

Student Affairs will still be offering emergency funding through its Emergency Grant Fund through the Sinclair Foundation. The Sinclair Foundation relies on the generosity of donors; therefore, the funds are much more limited than those we received from the Federal government.

Students enrolled at Sinclair Community College that have an emergency related financial need may be eligible for Sinclair’s Emergency Grant. Funds can be used to help with rent, groceries, electric bill, water bill, internet, etc. Students may apply for this award by clicking on the Apply for Emergency Grant link below.

To qualify for Emergency Grant Funds you must:

  • Have an emergency financial need (documentation required)
  • Be enrolled for 6 credit hours in the current semester
  • Be in a degree and/or certificate program
  • Additional factors which may impact your eligibility may include, but are not limited to CUM GPA, Financial Aid status, and previously awarded funds


  • Please note that applicants are only eligible to receive funding once while attending Sinclair.
