Grants of up to $500 are available to cover Tyler Bookstore books and digital access codes. Requests will also be considered for unforeseen expenses related to COVID such as rent/mortgage payments, car payments, car insurance, utility bills, and Kroger gift cards for food or car fuel.

This grant is separate from the Student Emergency Fund available to all students. Military-connected students may benefit applying for the Military Student Success Grant while funds last, in addition to applying to the Emergency Fund.

Military-connected students should complete the Military Student Success Grant Application for consideration. Funding is limited and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds are exhausted.

With the application, students should attach a copy of military ID, if they have one, and submit documentation for bills they would like assistance with. Military Student Success Grants will be paid directly to vendors (companies, organizations, etc.) by the John Tyler Community College Foundation Office after the Emergency Fund Committee approves each application. Students will not receive direct payments in the form of cash, checks, deposits to bank accounts, or payments to their credit card accounts.

After submitting the online application, Michelle Tindall, the Director of Student Assistance & Intervention Services, will follow up with students within 2 business days. Students may email for additional information.
