Types of Aid

Federal Pell Grant

Federal Pell Grants make funds available to eligible Nash Community College students based on enrollment status in a one or two-year curriculum. The actual amount of the grant is determined by the Department of Education. Undergraduate students who have a Bachelor’s Degree and/or who are in default of student loans or who have received an overpayment are not eligible for Federal Pell Grants.

The Next NC Scholarship is a new financial aid program that helps most North Carolinians from households making an Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of $80,000 or less pay for more than half, if not all, of tuition and fees to attend any community college or public university in the state. The Next NC Scholarship combines the federal Pell Grant with the state-funded financial aid program to form a simplified and predictable scholarship award that’s easier to understand and makes education more affordable for most North Carolinians. Submit the FAFSA to apply.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are gift aid for undergraduates with exceptional financial need. Pell Grant recipients with the lowest Expected Family Contributions (EFCs) are given first priority.

North Carolina Community College Grant

Students must be North Carolina residents enrolled for at least six (6) credit hours per semester in curriculum programs. Eligibility is determined based on the same criteria as the Federal Pell Grant; students not eligible for the Federal Pell Grant may be considered for the grant based on their estimated family contribution as determined on the Student Aid Report. Students who have earned the baccalaureate (4 year) college degree are ineligible.

Child Care Grant Program

Assistance with child care expenses from the Child Care Grant Program is contingent upon availability of funds for qualified students enrolled in eligible programs. Applications are available in the Financial Aid Office.

Federal College Work Study Program

The Federal College Work Study Program provides part-time work in academic and administrative departments on campus for eligible students to assist them with paying part of their educational expenses while attending classes. Students must complete the “Free Application for Federal Student Aid” (FASFA), be enrolled at least half-time, and be making satisfactory progress in an eligible program.
