Finish Line Grant Program

Finish Line Grant Program

In 2018, Governor Cooper established the Finish Line Grant Program to assist community college students in completing their education when faced with unforeseen financial hurdles.  The Kerr-Tar Workforce Development Board in partnership with Vance-Granville Community College and Piedmont Community College applied and were awarded Finish Line Grant funding.

Finish Line Grant funds are available to assist students with unforeseen financial emergencies such as  transportation, auto repairs, child care, dependent care, utility bills, medical referrals, or assistance with books, tuition, fees, or school supplies.  Finish Line Grants are awarded up to $1,000 per semester, per student. Students must be in good academic standing and have completed at least 50% of their degree or eligible Continuing Education Program.

If you are experiencing a financial emergency, please contact or visit the WIOA Office at (252) 738-3374 or Financial Aid Office at (252) 738-3280 for more information. Students may also contact their academic advisor.
