Emergency Aid for Students
Motlow College Foundation created a new fund to help students. The new fund is called Motlow Cares and the money will be used to help students with urgent needs in 4 specific areas as long as funding is available:
Partnerships for the Lift
The Motlow College Foundation has partnered with Tennessee College Access and Success Network (TCASN) to help students who have no local options for internet by providing them with a Straight Talk mobile hotspot and gift card for 4GB of data for wireless internet access. Students whose need for support is approved should receive the hot spot within 3 days.
