Finish Line Grants

Finish Line Grants help community college students who face unforeseen financial emergencies complete their training.

If a financial emergency is putting your education at risk, you might be eligible for a Finish Line Grant to cover unexpected expenses like emergency childcare, medical costs, car repairs or alternative transportation. 

To receive a Finish Line Grant, you must be in good academic standing and be at least 50% of the way through your training program. 

“We know far too many students who cite challenges other than academic reasons for not finishing school, and this program will help ensure more people can finish their training and get a good-paying job to support themselves and their families.” –Governor Cooper
