Thanks to the generosity of the Carroll and Milton Petrie Foundation, Guttman Community College is able to provide financial support to students who are facing urgent financial emergencies that threaten their attendance and success in college. Repayment is not expected.
For additional information about the Fund, students should consult with Financial Aid, Office of Student Engagement, or Single Stop and review the information pamphlet available at these locations.
There are two categories of grant awards:
Tier 1: Up to $65.00 in the form of a NYC metro card or a gift card to allow the student to pay for a specific expense approved by the Committee.
Tier 2: For funding that requires an award amounting to more than $65.00 or for a continuing award.
Currently enrolled students are eligible to apply. If a student is on academic probation, he/she may still be considered eligible to receive a grant, but he/she must address how receiving the award will help him/her return to good academic standing. The only students who are ineligible for grant awards are those who have falsified prior applications for support or who have been found guilty on Guttman disciplinary charges.
Students should be aware that grants from the Petrie Student Emergency Grant Fund will be counted against the ‘unmet’ need of their financial aid package.
