On July 12, 2018, Governor Roy Cooper announced the Finish Line Grants program to help community college students complete their training when facing unforeseen challenges – such as unexpected healthcare costs, childcare expenses, or car breakdowns.

In 2022, administration of the program transitioned from the Department of Commerce to the North Carolina Community College System. Visit the System website for more information. Students interested in applying for a Finish Line Grant should contact their college's Financial Aid Office.

Anyone interested in other workforce training scholarships should continue to contact their local NCWorks Career Center. Contact information is found at NCWorks.gov.
