Through the generosity of the T.L.L. Temple Foundation, Kilgore College received a second grant to develop a special student emergency fund to support the financial needs of students who are enrolled in targeted degrees/programs and making successful progress towards completion.
This fund offers emergency financial assistance to KC students with emergencies or unexpected hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund serves to offset short-term financial need and is not a replacement for or permanent supplement to financial aid. Awards are not considered loans and do not require repayment. While the maximum annual award is $1,500 per student, based upon the availability of funds, students may apply multiple times per year until this maximum is reached. Funds are limited and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
