Emergency Grants

We are awarding $500 grants for students impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. These grants are made possible thanks to generous donors in the community. They are not loans and will not need to be repaid. It is our hope that this helps our students through this difficult time and that you are able to continue your studies at Cabrillo.
