"It has already been approved," Benavides said. "There's eligibility requirements. Questions can be answered with a quick phone call to our financial aid or registration office."

STC officials said they hope the new aid motivates students in the community about higher education.

Any leftover funding from the emergency aid will be made into grants to help students pay for child care, rent, and other outside costs.
