Dreamkeepers logoDreamkeepers® Emergency Assistance Program

Durham Technical Community College is proud to be one of 43 colleges in the United States to offer the Dreamkeepers Emergency Assistance Program. Sometimes students, especially community college students, are hit with an unexpected life situation that causes a financial strain so severe they drop out of school in order to manage it. 

The Dreamkeepers program offers the possibility of assistance to students who find themselves in this dilemma. There are criteria that students must meet because the program is limited to students who, previous to the emergency, were managing their lives successfully and making strides toward their college credential. 

To be eligible to apply, a student must be:
  • enrolled in an eligible curriculum program or approved continuing education certificate course;
  • making successful progress in their program, as demonstrated by their transcript and/or Student Progress Report(s);
  • meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements;
  • experiencing an unforeseen financial emergency, and
  • are at risk of being unable to continue in school due to that emergency.
Assistance is granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability or national origin.

If you believe you may be a candidate for assistance from the Dreamkeepers program you are invited to speak with the program administrator, Beth Shulman, in the Phail Wynn Jr., Student Activities Center, room 1210 (Financial Aid office). If you complete the application first, you'll be contacted to schedule a meeting.
