Alumni Success Grant
Grants will provide emergency financial assistance for students who are at risk of discontinuing their studies due to losing basic needs that contribute to their success. Perhaps a commuting student’s car unexpectedly breaks down…or a professor springs an additional and unusually high lab fee…or transportation is needed to attend an immediate family member’s funeral in another state. Students who demonstrate they have exhausted all other funding options (scholarships, grants, federal assistance, employment, etc.) will be eligible to request grant funds to assist them with critical needs such as these.
Cristo Rey student alumni pursuing an associate’s or bachelor’s degree can apply for a maximum lifetime grant(s) of up to $2,500. They must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 and have experienced some change in financial status or a short-term financial emergency. Grants will be made on a case-by-case basis as determined by the Alumni Success Grant Committee. Applicants will complete a detailed financial application process, including a short interview with the Committee. Applicants also must agree to maintain regular communications with the Alumni Support Counselor.
