  • General Grant Information
    • Associated Student Government, along with the CCC Foundation and CCC Horticulture Department, has created a partial solution to the challenges of child care, textbook and fee expenses.
    • Grant recipients will be selected through an evaluation process that is based on, and may not be limited to: income, credit hours, grade point average, number and age of children and a student’s ability to sufficiently demonstrate a financial need for the grant.
    • The money that funds the grants comes from the CCC Foundation’s donations and several ASG fundraising activities.
    • The amount of money awarded varies due to the number of applicants, the need of the applicants, and the funds available.
    • Receiving a grant one term does not guarantee that you will receive a grant another term, and not everyone who applies will receive one.
    • In order for ASG to determine your eligibility for the grant program, you need to have your application fully complete.
    • All information you submit is confidential.
    • Only online applications accepted.

    Financial Aid Information
    • Federal financial aid regulations require you to report any sources of income or assistance that you receive during the school year that total $100 or more to the Student Financial Services Office. This includes money that you are awarded as a recipient of any ASG Grant, even though the funds do not come directly to you. Adjustments may need to be made to reduce your budget amount.
    • Student Financial Services determines your budget based on the information you provide to our office through the FAFSA and additional information forms. When you indicate that you will have child care costs during the school year, your budget is increased to include those costs. Though you do not receive award aid for childcare, those funds are included in the total award you can receive.
    • If you have questions about the impact of the grant on your aid package, please contact the Financial Aid Office in Roger Rook Hall or call 503-594-6100. Your information will be reviewed and your specific questions will be answered.
