The Charger Dream Fund is a fund created between Southwest Tech and the Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation to provide emergency grants to our students who are faced with an unexpected financial emergency that may cause them to drop out of school due to financial constraints. No form of public transportation exists within the 3,800 square mile region. Without transportation and the funds for gas, students are not able to access the campus and the training programs critical for job placement and career advancement. The Charger Dream program will assist in complementing current transportation related assistance by providing the funding needed for car repairs and other emergencies. A $500 grant will help a student stay in school and complete their degree. Great Lakes gave a lead grant of $34,700 and the Southwest Tech Foundation needs to match $32,300 for a total project budget of $67,000 that will be available to students. To date, the Southwest Tech Foundation has matched $17,300 and has $15,000 to raise to meet the match requirement and secure 100% of the $34,700 grant from Great Lakes.
