KCKCC COVID-19 Student Relief Fund

Due to the impact of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, Kansas City Kansas Community College (KCKCC) is working relentlessly to meet the unique needs of our students. KCKCC has established a process for students seeking temporary, short-term, financial assistance. The COVID-19 Student Relief Fund is made possible through the generous donations of KCKCC faculty, staff, alumni and donors.

Student Relief Award Criteria

The KCKCC COVID-19 Student Relief Fund will help with the rapid delivery of emergency aid to students who need it most. KCKCC’s aim is to meet students’ basic needs to help them stay in school and complete the semester. The COVID-19 Student Relief funds are for limited emergency financial support to currently enrolled degree or certificate seeking students who are unable to meet essential expenses due to a temporary or unexpected hardship.

The maximum amount awarded may be up to $1,000 and is only awarded once per semester. Spring applications are due May 22, 2020 and will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, subject to approval and availability of funds. Decisions regarding disbursement of funds are made on a case-by-case basis. Awards are not considered loans and do not require repayment. Some funds may be considered income and are therefore subject to federal taxes. Funding is available to students who meet the eligibility criteria outlined below.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Applicant must be currently enrolled as a degree or certificate seeking student at KCKCC
  • Experiencing unexpected financial hardship resulting from the coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak

The process to apply for the KCKCC COVID-19 Student Relief Fund is simple.  Financial Aid counselors will review applications and provide feedback. Spring semester application deadline is May 22, 2020.
