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

IGNITE’s Financial Relief Program will open for the 2017-18 school year on October 2, 2017. Please check back at that time. If you are currently in a situation where you require emergency financial assistance, please contact our Services Director, Sieu Moi Ly.

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.
