Recent high school graduates can now apply for a North Carolina Longleaf Commitment Grant to attend Cape Fear Community College for up to two years.

Students who graduated in 2020, 2021 or 2022 may be eligible for the $700 to $2,800 yearly awards, covering tuition and fees. Part-time students may receive a partial award.

“High school graduates have the exclusive opportunity to earn a degree from CFCC without accumulating student debt,” CFCC President Jim Morton said in a press release. “There is no better time to go to college than now; this type of grant for students is a rare, one-shot occurrence.”
