EVC Student Emergency Funding

​We know this is a challenging time for many of our EVC Students. As such, the Evergreen Valley College Associated Student Government (ASG) has set aside funding to offer a limited amount of emergency funds to assist our most vulnerable students to assist with basic needs resources as they continue to navigate through both the Santa Clara County and California "Shelter in Place" Orders.

Quick Facts about the Funding

  1. The Evergreen Valley College Associated Student Government-Student Emergency Fund is intended to provide immediate financial assistance to Evergreen Valley College students involved in a catastrophic or emergency situation involving circumstances which are sudden, unexpected and/or affect a student's ability to function as a successful student. Examples include, but are not limited to an accident, illness, travel for a funeral, fire damage or need for temporary housing.
  2. The fund is entirely supported by the Associated Student Government
  3. The funding does not need to be repaid; however, students are only eligible for one fund per calendar year (365 days).
  4. The funding request cannot exceed $500.
  5. The Associated Student Government reserves the right to deny, partially fund, or fully fund the requested amount. Due to the limited amount of funds available, there is a possibility that some applications will not be funded. ASG is committed to funding applications for our most vulnerable student populations as a priority including students that are currently homeless, facing homelessness, and are first time applicants.

Eligibility Requirements

  1. Students must complete the screening form and application in entirety.
  2. Students must provide proof of current enrollment in a minimum of six units. Returning students must have a minimum 2.0 GPA.
  3. Students must provide documentation of stated emergency such as a utilities bill, eviction letter, etc. ASG reserves the right to deny applications deemed as non-catastrophic, non-emergency and/or a foreseen event.
  4. Students may only apply for and receive funding once a full calendar year. Students who have previously received funding must wait 365 days from the date of first application before becoming eligible for another grant.
  5. Students who owe more than $100 to the San Jose Evergreen Community College District will be ineligible to receive funding.
  6. Students with a student disciplinary record will be ineligible to receive funding.

Application Process

In order to apply for the emergency funding students should follow the below steps:

  1. Download and complete the screening form and application. The application is completely fillable so there is no need to print out the form and hand write.
  2. Once you have completed the application, email the application and requested documentation (see above under eligibility requirements) to: evcemergencyfunds@evc.edu
  3. Once received applications will be reviewed by the committee. Applicants will be notified via email within 48 hours whether their application has been fully approved, partially approved, or not approved at this time.
  4. If approved, students will receive an email notification with a Check Request Form. Students must complete the first half of the document and select their choice of receiving their funds via a check mailed to their home address listed on the application or via a bank wire to their bank account. In order to receive a bank wire, students must provide their bank account number, routing number, and identify whether the listed bank account is a checking or savings account.
  5. Students will receive approved funds anywhere between 3-7 days depending on the selection of mail delivery, or, if selected, the accuracy of the banking information provided.

Additional Resources

The Associated Student Government recognizes that there may be more applicants than funding allows. As such, we encourage all students to take advantage of the services and assistance provided by Santa Clara County. Please see the COVID-19 Financial Assistance Flyer for more information.
