SSS Supplement Grant Aid

SSS provides supplemental grant aid to students to assist with educational expenses and to reduce student loan debt. To be eligible, a student must be an active SSS participant (as determined by the SSS program), currently receiving a Pell Grant, be in good academic standing with the college, and have a demonstrated financial aid need as determined by GPC's financial aid office. Recipients will be selected and notified by the SSS staff. Specific benefits of the grant aid are:
  • Reduction in student loan debt
  • An opportunity to pay for more courses, which will decrease matriculation time at GPC
  • To alleviate the challenge of trying to find extra funds to pay for college and related expenses
