Finish Line Grant

Piedmont Community College, Piedmont Triad Workforce Development Board, and Kerr-Tar Workforce Development Board are committed to helping our students reach their goals. In an effort to help support students in achieving high graduation and staying in college at NC community colleges, Governor Roy Cooper announced the Finish Line Grant on July 12, 2018. Many times students are faced with unforeseen financial circumstances that can impact their graduation or enrollment. These funds will help students to overcome these financial barriers to completing their training and education.

The primary objective of the Finish Line Grant is to resolve financial issues that students may encounter so they are able to focus on their studies.
