BCC Receives Additional Hurricane Emergency Funds for Students
Bladen Community College announces that it has received additional emergency funding for students impacted by Hurricane Florence.
The State Board of Community Colleges reallocated the additional funding that was made possible by the General Assembly for emergency grants to help students at community colleges serving federally designated disaster counties.
The funds will cover grants for eligible, currently enrolled students who suffered financial hardship caused by damage and destruction from Hurricane Florence. The funds may be used to cover any expenses that support a student’s continued enrollment, including costs related to transportation, textbooks, tuition, fees and living expenses.
Students at Bladen Community College who are currently enrolled and who have experienced a financial emergency or unforeseen challenges as a result of Hurricane Florence as well as can demonstrate a need for assistance to support continued enrollment should seek out a financial aid counselor on campus or visit BCC’s website http://www.bladencc.edu/hurricane-florence-emergency-grant/ for the online application as well as further information.
