Financial Assistance

Student Outreach and Support assists students with financial needs through the Dreamkeepers Emergency Fund, Perkins Grants, and the HFC Student Emergency Fund.

Dreamkeepers Emergency Fund

The Dreamkeepers Emergency Fund helps students overcome unforeseen financial emergencies and remain focused on what matters most: their education. Dreamkeepers is a program of Scholarship America, which was established by Lumina Foundation for Education.

To be eligible to apply students must:

  • Be a current HFC student.
  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.0 or have documentation showing you are earning at least a "C" in all current classes.
  • Have documentation demonstrating financial need.
  • Be a first-time recipient of Dreamkeepers funds.

Please note that financial aid may be a factor in determining eligibility.

Eligible students are invited to visit the On-line Student Application website at:


Dreamkeepers funding will not be available in May, June, July, and August.

HFC's Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund helps students stay in school (applicable during fall and winter semesters only). The Fund is made possible in part by individual donors including faculty, staff and community members who participate in an annual fundraising luncheon.
