Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) students who have been impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic have access to grants through the American Rescue Plan (ARP) to support their studies for the spring semester , which begins on January 18.
Students who have faced unexpected educational expenses or pandemic-related financial hardship can apply for grants.
Over 2,000 students have received funding to date.
Students do not need to complete a FAFSA application. Those who need help paying their tuition can apply for financial aid, scholarships, and federal stimulus funds. Or, they can set up payment plans to spread payments over the semester.
Students can get financial aid to cover tuition for credit and non-credit courses, as well as additional expenses, if applicable. In addition, grants can also help cover expenses such as food, housing and utility costs, transportation costs, child care and health care.
To apply, students must complete an online application on the myLCCC portal. Click Apply for Scholarships under Student Resources on the left side of the screen. Or: www.LCCC.edu/scholarships and click on the Apply for Scholarships link.
