The Carroll and Milton Petrie Foundation Student Emergency Grant Fund provides financial assistance to KCC students who are currently enrolled, are in good academic standing and are facing short-term financial emergencies.  The goal is to provide students with the financial relief necessary for them to remain in school, rather than having to drop out due to factors outside of their control. The amount per award is determined based on the scope of the student’s particular emergency. Students must meet CUNY regulations and guidelines as they pertain to receiving financial support.


Examples of emergency include, but are not limited to:

  • Loss of job by student or family member
  • Fire, flooding or other natural disaster affecting living quarters
  • Theft of computer, textbooks or other academic equipment
  • Medical bills for uninsured or uncovered events
  • Eyeglasses or essential dental work
  • Travel for death of immediate family member
  • Homelessness or impending homelessness due to loss of housing or temporary inability to pay rent/mortgage
  • Loss of child care
  • Need for season-appropriate clothing, or clothing necessary for work or job interview
  • On-campus food services for student and immediate family members
  • Transportation fees and fares to school or medical appointments


Students who are interested in applying for this grant must visit A-217 (Enrollment Management) to fill out a formal application.  IMPORTANT: to be considered for this grant, a student MUST provide credible documentation of his or her emergency.  Applications that do not include accompanying documentation will not be considered

Lifeline, Citizen Cope

When you’re so long gone, you can’t help yourself
When you’re so dead wrong
Let alone no one else

Well the children still dying in the streets
The babies still living with disease
The cops got guns, the poor folks got sons
Who work for Mr. Franklin every week

If you’ve come looking for hard times
Hard times ain’t hard to find
Cause we’ve been given that lifeline
Only once in a lifetime

Baby we were born
Maybe we were born
To be sure … to endure
When the storm comes

Got them sad eyes
Got them cat eyes
Got your angels tired

From saving your life

So you would be best
To contain yourself
Before you end up killed

His bare feet
Touch her bare feet
The air breaths sweet
At the mountains peak

And I forgot
What the wise man said
About that ancient thread

Baby we were born
Maybe we were born
To be sure … to rejoice
When it succumbs
