lifesaver fund

The SCC Lifesaver Fund is an emergency grant program available to students to pay for unforeseen expenses that could lead to dropping out of college. South Central College's Campus Foundations will cover up to $1,000 (maximum per person, per academic year) of critical expenses such as vehicle repairs, utility shut-off, medical bills and other emergencies. Payment to third party vendors is made within 48 hours of the grant decision.

If submitting a request, you must provide supporting documents with your application. Documents could include an automotive repair estimate, utility bill, late notice, medical bill or a letter or support from a counselor or social worker. If no supporting documentation is submitted, the request will not be reviewed. Violations of the law are not considered unforeseen emergencies and will not be considered for Lifesaver funds.

To Apply for Lifesaver Funds:

  1. Complete the online Lifesaver Application.

  2. Upload documentation supporting the request (e.g. automotive repair estimate, utility bill, late notice, medical bill or a letter or support from a counselor or social worker).
