Dreamkeepers Emergency Grant

Dreamkeepers Emergency Financial Assistance Grant

Are you a student experiencing a financial emergency that could result in you leaving MATC?

MATC's Dreamkeepers program provides small emergency assistance grants (usually less than $500) to students who are experiencing an unexpected, unlikely to reoccur event that has caused a financial emergency and who has no other resources available.

The goal of this program is to provide support to keep students in school even when emergencies arise. 
Please note, this grant is awarded on a first-come first-served basis.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Be a current MATC student actively attending classes and enrolled in the current semester
  • Have attended MATC for more than one semester (some exceptions may be granted based on emergency type.)
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.00
  • Provide a brief statement describing the financial emergency and submit a copy of the bill you seek to have paid through the MATC Dreamkeepers program.
  • Have not met the per semester or the lifetime award limits. An MATC student may receive up to $500 per semester and a total lifetime limit of $2,500 in emergency grant assistance. (MATC includes Winterim awards as part of the Spring semester and Summer semester awards as part of the Fall semester.)
