The CCS Foundation is excited to share that we have been awarded a grant from the US Bank Foundation!
The award, received this summer, supports emergency aid awards for our Spokane and Spokane Falls Community College students. Emergency aid is a retention issue. Students often face barriers to completing their education because they’re trying to cover childcare costs, rent, snow tires for driving to school, glasses for reading the board and screen in class and more.
Emergency aid awards provide a comprehensive solution to this problem. Last year alone, the Foundation provided our students with 371 scholarship and emergency aid awards. These awards totaled over $401,000.
The generous award from the US Bank Foundation will help more than 30 students stay focused on school and reach graduation. It’s the latest award from US Bank Foundation’s nearly 20-year history of supporting our students.
Stay tuned to our website to hear from students who received emergency aid awards this year!
