Lancer Emergency Assistance Fund

Keep studying despite unexpected bills

Lancer Emergency Assistance Fund (LEAF) is an emergency fund built with care and compassion. The judgment-free services offered through this program are available to all Lancer students. Current CLC students who unexpectedly find themselves unable to pay life’s expenses can reach out to CLC for help.

Helping students in tight spots

Here are a few examples of ways LEAF can help:

  • assistance to fix a flat tire or to buy gas to go to class
  • meal cards to buy groceries to stay healthy and relieve food insecurity
  • payment for the gas bill, to keep your home warm for the winter as you take classes online

For aid with current or expected tuition costs or other bills owed to the college, explore available financial aid options.
