Gov. Roy Cooper called on the General Assembly on Tuesday to expand grants for students at community colleges and universities who face acute financial difficulties.
Cooper spoke at an event at Central Piedmont Community College on Tuesday afternoon, where the “Finish Line” grant program began in 2018. The program gives eligible community college students up to $1,000 per semester, for a maximum of two semesters. The grants can cover expenses like rent, car repairs, or books.
