Emergency Gap Funding – Please click here to access the Emergency Gap Funding Application

SAISD graduating seniors enrolling in college as well as currently enrolled college students are eligible to apply for one-time funding to meet a direct need or gap. Funds are used to support those things that can keep our students from being able to follow the plan they have set. From housing deposits, enrollment and orientation fees that are required before their aid/scholarship package kicks in, and all the barriers that can prevent a student from walking in to the first day of college classes or making it to college commencement are in the blue box to your left as well as on the application. Applications from graduating seniors must include the College Bound Advisor’s signature. Applications from recent alumni must include the College Alumni Advisor’s signature.
