CFCC launches Next NC Scholarship

CFCC Wilmington Campus Wilmington, NC – Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) is excited to announce the Next NC Scholarship, a groundbreaking financial aid program tailored to support North Carolinians from households with an annual income of $80,000 or less. This scholarship fully covers tuition and fees at CFCC, offering students an opportunity to pursue higher education without the burden of repayment.

The program combines the federal Pell Grant with the state-funded financial aid program to create a streamlined scholarship award. Qualifying students will receive at least $3,000. The scholarship award can also be used for books, food, and housing.

Qualifying students for the Next NC Scholarship must meet the following requirements:

  1. A North Carolina resident who is eligible for in-state tuition.
  2. A high school graduate (high school equivalency completers are eligible).
  3. From a household with an annual Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of $80,000 or less.
  4. Enrolled in an eligible undergraduate curriculum program for the 2024-2025 academic year.
  5. Taking at least 6 credit hours per semester (part-time students will receive a partial award).
  6. Meeting the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards at CFCC.
  7. A student who has completed the 2024-225 FAFSA, with a resulting Student Aid Index (SAI) at or below 7,500 (once complete, the financial aid office at the college/university you plan to attend will determine and confirm eligibility).

“We are excited to introduce the Next NC Scholarship to our current and prospective students,” said Jim Morton, CFCC President. “This program not only simplifies the financial aid process but also eliminates financial barriers to education for many individuals in our community.”

Applying for the Next NC scholarship is simple. Submit the FAFSA form, and if the student is eligible, they will receive the Next NC Scholarship. There are no additional forms to fill out. The Next NC priority filing date is August 15, 2024. For more information, visit www.nextncscholarship.org .
