Offers assistance for unexpected needs

The No Barriers fund offers a quick-turnaround, helping hand to students who have a sudden financial emergency that might cause them to drop out of a degree program. Though the amount of funds provided to students is usually less than $500, there are times in life when even just a few hundred dollars can mean the difference between continuing in school or stopping out.

Recipients are asked to give back to the fund at a future time, if possible, or give back to others through community service. ā€œI plan on giving most of it back to the college, for the next person who comes along, once Iā€™m in a little bit better situation,ā€ said a former No Barriers recipient.
