COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund

FVCC has established a COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund to help currently enrolled students who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of the pandemic. Students can use this money to pay for basic necessities, including housing, food, health care and course materials. Students will not be required to repay this money. At this time, Running Start students are not eligible to apply for assistance from the Student Emergency Fund.
