Eagle Rock School graduates are eligible for Graduate Higher Education (GHED) funds if they do NOT owe Eagle Rock (ER) debt for Student Incidentals through the business office.
Funds can be used on an annual basis towards the following:
$2,000 freshman (year 1)
$2,000 sophomore (year 2)
$2,000 junior (year 3)
$2,000 senior (year 4)
$2,000 for graduate school (years 5, 6 and 7; $2,000 for each of the first three years)
Includes trade schools and various institutions offering specialized career training toward “higher education”, i.e.; culinary, bartending, or aviation classes.
Funds can be used for tuition, books, bus passes, registration deposits, and laptops (with proof of enrollment). In addition, funds can be applied toward current or past enrollment expenses if you are currently enrolled in school or toward outstanding government guaranteed educational loans for undergraduate cost if the full $8,000 is not expensed.
Checks from The Fund are made out to both you and your school or loan agency. Co-endorsement is therefore required by the student on the back of the check.
HOW DO I APPLY?
- Complete the application below.
- Email confirmation of current enrollment (a tuition bill or other expenses charged by your college/university/trade school) by replying to the confirmation email you’ll receive after submitting this form or mail to ER.
- Submit application to ER by the 10th of the month.
- If you have questions, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page.
- If after referring to the Frequently Asked Questions you still need assistance, please contact Denise Dunn.
The business office staff will be available on a limited basis during the trimester breaks (April/May, Aug/Sept, Dec/Jan). Be sure to plan ahead based on when your bills are due, in order to submit them to ER by the 10th of each month. The business office will cut the check within a week of receiving your application and send a clarifying letter to your school or loan agency explaining how the funds may be applied.
We ask graduates to contribute $5.00 or more annually to The Fund to help future graduates pursue their education.
