Trident Tech Students Already Face Challenges.
For students who are on their own and have jobs for which they do not get paid time off, an unforeseen financial emergency can be devastating.

During this unprecedented time of uncertainty, one thing is for sure: many students will need financial assistance in order to continue their education and stay in college.
