Richmond Community College has another grant available for students called the North Carolina Longleaf Complete Grant.
The Longleaf Complete program is intended to help community college near-completers finish their degree or credential.
Prior to the pandemic, more than a million North Carolinians had some college credits but no degree. During the pandemic, three in 10 adults who planned to go to college canceled their plans, according to information provided by the North Carolina Community College System.
“The Longleaf Complete grant will help these near-completers finish their education and get back on track with their career plans,” said RCC Director of Financial Aid Emily Jarrell. “We hope people will take advantage of this new opportunity for financial assistance.”
