What is the Student Emergency Fund?

As the impact of the coronavirus continues to grow across the United States the financial implications also continue to grow. People are losing work as businesses and K-12 schools close and many say they are struggling to make ends meet. 

The Hocking College Student Emergency Fund provides financial assistance to students who may otherwise be at risk of dropping out of college due to an unexpected financial emergency such as COVID-19.

If you, or a student you know, are experiencing an unplanned expense, the Student Emergency Fund may be an option. The Foundation office is always accepting applications.


  • Students are only eligible to receive funding during the semester in which they apply, so they must be currently enrolled in coursework when completing the application.
  • Applicants must have a FAFSA on file for the current academic year.
  • Applicants must provide documentation of the exceptional financial hardship as well as a bill, estimate, letter verifying the expense and the company/business owed whenever possible. If documentation is not available, the student must adequately describe their need and situation in detail below.
