Pay-it-Forward Programs for Financial Assistance

Pay-it-Forward funding is providing mainly by donations from Roane State faculty and staff who work directly with students and know the impact that this program is making. Students often run into difficulty in their final semester coming up with enough funds to cover the cost of tuition and books. Many of our students encounter an emergency that puts them in a financial crisis when a vehicle breaks down or they don't have enough gas money to get to class. We don't want our students to miss class but we do want them to succeed and complete their college degree. We are very thankful for the support of our staff and faculty to make these awards possible.

Employees of the One-Stop and other front-line employees may direct students for assistance but please note that the Foundation Office does not grant Pay-it-Forward Emergency Aid to students. Students are required to meet with the designee for their specific campus to apply for this assistance.

Over $56,000 was awarded from our Pay-it-Forward program during 2017-18.

There are specific requirements for each and students must complete the online scholarship application and comply with all post-acceptance requirements to be eligible.

Before completing any of the forms for submission, please make sure you have read the appropriate policy and follow the set guidelines. Thank you for all you do for our students.
