FSU PC Seminole Emergency Relief fund open for students

The application will be available online beginning March 30 (MGN).

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - FSU Panama City is re-establishing the Seminole Emergency Relief Fund to offer one-time financial assistance to students in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"As the world is taking unprecedented steps to ‘flatten the curve’ in the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain focused on the FSU PC Promise,” Dean Randy Hanna said. “Through the Seminole Emergency Relief Fund, we can tear down some of the financial obstacles that might hinder student success.”

According to a press release, the fund was previously used after Hurricane Michael in October 2018. The fund was replenished with $10,000 donation from the United Way.

School officials say through this fund, students will be able to request up to $1,000 for food, transportation, housing, or other needs. They must be able to prove financial need through layoff notifications, bills and other documentation.

The application will be available online beginning March 30.
