“Golden LEAF Scholarships are now available for students from qualifying counties who are attending the state’s participating community colleges. Scholarships provide up to $250 per semester for students enrolling in occupational programs and up to $750 per semester for curriculum students, including summer term. Awards can be applied toward tuition, fees, books, supplies at the community college where enrolled, transportation, child care expenses related to attending classes, and mid-skills credential testing upon course completion.

Information is available at a participating college’s financial aid office and must be returned to the financial office. Deadlines for the scholarship applications are set by each college. Contact your college’s financial aid office (link to NCCCS’s websites) as soon as you plan to enroll to determine application deadlines. Please do not send your application to the Golden LEAF Foundation.”
