Associated Student Government Grants

CCC's student government offers a variety of small grants to help students meet their goals and graduate. The funds are provided thanks to donations to the college's Foundation, as well as ASG and Horticulture Department fundraisers. Applications are accepted online before each term.

Grant recipients are selected through an evaluation process based on many factors, including financial need, grades, credit hours and more. The amount of money awarded varies due to the number of applicants and the funds available. Receiving a grant one term does not guarantee that you will receive a grant another term. Not everyone who applies will receive one.

Please note: 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 Aid Office. 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.
