Bucks County Community College Foundation has set up a Student Emergency Fund to help learners achieve their goals while dealing with challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic.
“Amid the COVID-19 health crisis, we continue to strive to meet the goals of our mission while working together to solve new challenges as they arise,” wrote Dr. Stephanie Shanblatt president, Bucks County Community College. “Our students need help in overcoming the emerging barriers that interfere with their ability to live and learn.”
Some of those barriers include: job loss, technology issues, transportation issues, buying groceries and homelessness.
Eligible students may receive micro-grants to get them through an emergency situation and back on track to meet their educational goals.
A fundraising campaign, Means to Succeed, has been established in support of the Student Emergency Fund.
