Longleaf Grant Renewed
Published on Friday, November 19th, 2021
North Carolina’s Longleaf Commitment Grant is a program for 2021 Montgomery County High School graduates who attend Montgomery Community College in the Fall 2021 semester. MCHS graduates may be eligible to receive this grant to cover tuition and fees toward a degree or to attain transfer credit. Full-time eligible students will receive $700 to $2,800 per academic year for a total of two years. Less than full-time students may receive a partial award. The Longleaf Commitment Grant ends at the conclusion of the 2023 spring semester.
Eligibility requirements are simple: graduate from MCHS in 2021, be a NC resident for tuition purposes, be a first-time MCC student (Career & College Promise and Early College High School students are eligible), enroll in an MCC curriculum program during the 2021-22 academic year (at least 6 credit hours per semester), complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for 2021-22, have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from $0 – $15,000 (EFC is based upon a student’s FAFSA determination), renew the FAFSA for the 2022-23 academic years and meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements of the college.
MCHS grads can apply for the Longleaf Commitment Grant at www.CFNC.org. To get your EFC and determine your financial aid eligibility, students can submit their FASFA at www.studentaid.gov. Call Doni Hatchel in Financial Aid at MCC for more information, 898-9613.
