  • 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.
    • Do not mail this application; ASG is not responsible for items lost in the mail.
    About the fees grant
    • Proceeds from the Horticulture Department's Urban Agriculture Farmers Market funds this grant.
    • The Fees Grant money may be used as needed for educational expenses.
    • Funds will be administered through Financial Aid in your student account. If you have a zero balance, a check can be issued if requested.
    • The money that funds the grants comes from the CCC Foundation’s donations, several ASG fundraising activities and the CCC Horticulture Farmers Market proceeds.
    About the child care grant
    • In order to be eligible for a grant, your child(ren) must be placed with a state certified and approved Childcare provider or facility.
    • Only one grant can be awarded per child in a family. For example, a separated or divorced couple may not get a grant each for their common child(ren). However, other dependent children can be put on an application.
    About the textbook grant
    • The Textbook Grant money may be used in the CCC Bookstore or the Student Government Book Exchange.
    • Money awarded from the Textbook Grant can only be used to purchase textbooks. School supplies are not covered.
    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.
    • To find out about the impact of the grant on your aid package, please contact Chippi Bello, from Enrollment Services, in Roger Rook Hall or call 503-594-3099. Your information will be reviewed and your specific questions will be answered.
