Landfall Grant to Assist Students in CFCC Health Sciences Programs

Grant to reduce the cost of various health science certification exams

The Cape Fear Community College Foundation recently received a $5,000 grant from the Landfall Foundation to assist health sciences students with paying for certification exams. Funding from the grant will be used to assist students who are enrolled in various health sciences programs by covering a portion of the cost of various certification exams for students who are unable to pay the entire amount. The grant will help many students by giving them the certifications they need to become successfully employed upon graduation.

Students in CFCC’s health science programs are required to complete a variety of certifications that further qualify them for employment in their particular fields. Many of the health certifications are now mandated as an accreditation standard and have been difficult for students to afford due to their personal financial hardships. The Landfall Foundation grant will increase the opportunity for students in CFCC Health Science programs to apply for the examinations and become successfully employed by offsetting the cost.

The mission of the Landfall Foundation is to provide funds to local nonprofit organizations for programs and projects that provide for the Arts, Education, and Health and Welfare in the Greater Wilmington, North Carolina area.

The Cape Fear Community College Foundation exists solely to support the students, teachers, programs and mission of the College.
