Grants and scholarships are often called “gift aid” because they are free money—financial aid that doesn’t have to be repaid. Grants are often need-based, while scholarships are usually merit-based. Carteret Community College Financial Aid Office awards scholarships to new, incoming students, continuing students, and graduating students and all students are encouraged to apply.

Grants and scholarships can come from the federal government, your state government, your college or career school, or a private or nonprofit organizations. Do your research, apply for any grants or scholarships you might be eligible for, and be sure to meet application deadlines!

Next NC Scholarship

Get money for college that you don’t have to pay back.

The Next NC Scholarship is a financial aid program that helps most North Carolinians from households making $80,000 or less pursue higher education by fully covering tuition and fees at any community college or more than half, if not all, of tuition and fees to attend any public university in the state. The best part? It’s money that doesn’t have to be repaid. To find out if you’re eligible visit www.nextncscholarship.org.

Applying is simple. Just submit the FAFSA form. If you’re eligible, you’ll receive the Next NC Scholarship. There are no additional forms to fill out.

Federal Pell Grant (PELL)

This is the Federal government’s primary grant program. Funding for this program ranges from $657 – $6,195 for the 2019-20 academic year. This grant is “gift aid” and does not have to be repaid as long as the student does not completely withdraw or is withdrawn from all courses for the semester. Awards are based on the student’s EFC (expected family contribution) that is listed on the FAFSA.

The Department of Education has announced that students eligible for the Pell Grant may be able to receive a third disbursement during the same academic year.
