Kent Cares

Emergency grant money will be distributed with the intent of helping as many students as possible with financial challenges. The financial awards will be based on a student’s individual need and circumstance.
To be considered for emergency grant funding: 

  • You must apply using the existing emergency grant application found on FlashLine.
  • You must be enrolled for the 2021 Fall Semester.
  • You must be pursuing a degree.

Once an application has been reviewed, you will be contacted by email with additional information.
 

This is emergency funding for technology-based needs, whether to purchase a computer, a hotspot, or another technology-based item to help students succeed in the classroom.
