Emergency Grant Programs

MATC offers two programs that provide financial assistance to students experiencing economic emergencies that affect their ability to remain in school. 

Dreamkeepers® Emergency Financial Assistance Grant

MATC’s Dreamkeepers program provides small emergency assistance grants (usually less than $500) to students who are experiencing a one-time, unexpected, unlikely to reoccur event that has caused a financial emergency and who has no other resources available. Examples include loss due to fire, theft or accident or a sudden, unavoidable interruption of income.

Eligibility Requirements
  • Be a Federal Pell Grant recipient in the term an emergency grant is requested. (Some exceptions may apply).
  • Have attended MATC for more than one semester (Some exceptions may apply).
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.00
  • Provide some form of documentation of the financial emergency – your college will guide you through this.
Examples of emergencies include:
  • Loss due to fire, theft or accident
  • Sudden, unavoidable interruption of income
