Emergency Aid Program

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College’s Emergency Aid Program provides assistance to current students at risk of dropping out of college due to unexpected financial emergencies. This assistance was created to help students stay in college and meet their educational goals, ultimately securing a better financial future.

Eligible Expenses
  • Child Care
  • Food/Meals
  • Gas
  • Housing/Rent
  • Medical/Dental Expenses
  • Personal Automobile Expenses
  • Public Transportation/Bus Pass
  • Utilities
Ineligible Expenses
  • Alcohol
  • Books
  • Entertainment Expenses
  • Fees
  • Legal Fees
  • Tobacco
  • Tuition

Students must apply and determined to be eligible. Eligibility is determined by the information entered through the online application at the link below. There is a maximum of $500 per student and students are only eligible for one award per semester. A legitimate emergency must be verified with paperwork (invoice, estimates). Checks are not made directly to students, checks are made directly to a legitimate/licensed vendor. Checks cannot be made to a friend or relative.

After a current student submits a completed application, the college receives notice and the administrative process of verification and approval or denial begins. Awards can sometimes be adjusted from the original amount requested. If you are a parent with independent children, you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Student Family Support Center as an alternative to this funding.
