The Student Emergency Assistance Funds pulls from two grants. The Student Emergency Assistance Grant (SEAG) is an emergency aid program to assist students experiencing unforeseen emergencies or situations that affect their ability to attend classes; and the Supporting Student Experiencing Homelessness (SSEH). Contact email@example.com for questions and concerns. Applications for Winter Quarter open Jan 22nd. All applications submitted before Jan 22nd will be responded with resources.
Students must book an appointment with a coach to apply.
BEAM is our internal office emergency funding available for enrolled Bellevue College students in 6 credits or more or in a degree/credential-seeking program to be eligible to receive the grant. Each approved student will also be prompted to provide w-9 information during the claiming fund’s process for tax purposes. This is important for any students that are accidentally approved for more than one award during the year as it would then be considered taxable income. These funds are NOT intended to pay for tuition, fees, or rent. Award limits are $599.00.
