Public resources alone are no longer sufficient. To fulfill our mission and meet the students’ needs, we seek partners among businesses, foundations, and individuals who understand the transformational value of a Bishop State Community College education and are willing to invest in that work.

Investments in the Bishop State Community College Foundation support economic development, workforce development, and our community’s quality of life.

Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund was created by the Bishop State Foundation to assist Bishop State students who encounter an unforeseen financial emergency that would otherwise prevent them from continuing their education at Bishop State. These funds are not intended to be used for routine expenses or as a consistent supplement to a student’s education funding sources. This funding is only available during the semester the student is enrolled and the emergency occurs.

The Student Emergency Fund can help you with unanticipated financial emergencies caused by:

  • Housing and living expenses
  • Car repairs or transportation issues
  • Childcare
  • Family emergencies
  • Natural disasters
  • Unanticipated loss of employment
  • Food Insecurities

How to Apply?

Students can submit their request by completing the online form:

If approved, funds will be distributed to the business where the bill is due and not directly to the student.

Every effort will be made to fulfill approved requests within five (5) business days.

Assistance is granted without regard to race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

How Is the Student Emergency Fund Supported?
The Student Emergency Fund is completely supported through donations to the Bishop State Foundation. If you are interested, there are three easy ways you can give to support the Fund:

  1. If you are a Bishop State employee, sign up for a payroll deduction and check the box to support the Student Emergency Fund.
  2. Make check payable to Bishop State Foundation and write Student Emergency Fund in the memo line.
  3. Make an online donation and select Student Emergency Fund.
