The Edmonds College Foundation Emergency Assistance Program is available for currently enrolled students who are experiencing an unforeseen financial difficulty that has occurred in the last 60 days, is beyond their control, and could prevent them from continuing their education. Funding can be used to pay for housing, utilities, food, transportation, and health care. The maximum award available is $500.

The Student Emergency Assistance Grant (SEAG) is open to currently enrolled students who have experienced a sudden, urgent, or unexpected financial difficulty that impacts their ability to complete the quarter. The grant can help with housing, utilities, food, transportation, health care, and childcare. 

The Supporting Students Experiencing Homelessness (SSEH) grant is available to students who are currently homeless and those who have aged out of the foster care system. Funding can be used for housing, laundry vouchers, transportation, and more.

SSEH and SEAG care coordinators are also available to help students navigate community resources and explore long-term solutions. Email or to contact a care coordinator.

Additionally, the Edmonds College Food Pantry is offering free food and personal hygiene items for Edmonds College students and employees. Please check the Food Pantry webpage for more details and the current schedule.
