Crisis Grants

Hennepin Technical College has assistance available for students facing unexpected financial emergencies each academic year. The crisis grants were created to help students stay in college and achieve their educational goals. Funds are dispersed on a first come, first served basis to eligible students while funds last. Grants are made possible through the Hennepin Technical College Foundation. Please note that most funds will be exhausted at the end of the term. These grants cannot take the place of long-term college financing.

Crisis grant funds have been exhausted for Spring 2023 Semester.
Future funds will be available in Fall 2023.

Student Responsibilities

  • Recipients agree to follow-up with a Hennepin Technical College Social Worker for additional resources and support (if needed)


  • Foundation Crisis Grants
    If approved for funding, payment will be made to the creditor on the student's behalf, not directly to the student. Foundation Crisis Grants are available up to $500 one time per academic year.

Additional Information

Recipients may be asked to participate in follow-up studies or promotional efforts, including sharing their story regarding how the Crisis Grant enabled them to stay in college.
