Financial Relief Program

In over your head? IGNITE’s Financial Relief Program (FRP) is here. When emergency financial situations arise, FRP provides short-term assistance to full-time students and it’s all confidential.

Examples of emergency situations include, but are not limited to:

  • Being kicked out of home/imminent homelessness
  • Physical and/or health issues
  • Child care issues
  • Abuse

If you feel you are in an emergency situation and need help from IGNITE, please fill out the application.

* Please note that the FRP is not intended to pay for tuition.

* Please contact Communications Director Natalie Bobyk for alternative formats.
