Autry Foundation

About Us

From helping the young mother who needed an emergency car repair to make it to the final week of class, to assisting the nursing student who could not afford childcare, to funding

the EMT student who needed help paying for supplies, the dollars of the Autry Educational Foundation turn dreams into success stories.


FORMS OF ASSISTANCE: Autry Technology Center Educational Foundation is designed to assist students who have exhausted other outlets for assistance. Autry Technology Center Educational Foundation offers two forms of assistance:

         • Emergency grants (Egrants)

         • Grants


Egrants provide emergency assistance to current students, allowing them to continue their education at Autry Technology Center.

Below are the guidelines and applications for available grants.

      • Egrants are a “last resort” option. Funding is for non-tuition related emergencies only.

        Examples include transportation, utility and medical needs.

      • Staff will work with the student to exhaust all other funding options, as well as work with students

        to connect them with area agencies who might be able to better provide assistance before

        suggesting applying for a grant.

      • Maximum award is $250.

      • Egrants have an open deadline and decisions are often made within 24 hours.


Grants provide financial assistance to potential and current students to allow them to begin or continue their education at Autry Technology Center.

    • Funding is for tuition, transportation, supplies, uniforms or other expenses that may be

       required for a student to successfully participate in a class at Autry.

     • Grant amount is determined based on the applicant’s need. Generally,

       the applicant will be required to pay a portion of the expense.

     • Grant deadlines are the 1st & 15th of each month by 4:00PM
