Student Emergency Fund
Columbia Basin College Foundation’s Emergency Need Fund is funded in partnership with STCU in order to assist students who are experiencing an unforeseen financial crisis that is creating a barrier to their student success. The fund provides small grants to students who are experiencing a one-time financial hardship that is unlikely to occur again.
