Emergency Fund Request

  • Spartanburg Community College Emergency Fund

    Students who find themselves in a difficult financial situation at SCC often seek monetary relief through the SCC Foundation (SCCF). Though SCCF does provide student support through scholarships, we do not have sufficient discretionary funds to meet all emergencies. However, based on specific hardship circumstances we will make every effort to assist a student with one-time emergency needs through a designated Foundation fund.

    Emergency Fund awards are up to $500.
