LCCC has COVID funds for student financial aid

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 education for the spring semester, which begin Jan. 18.

Students who have faced unexpected educational expenses or financial hardship related to the pandemic can apply for the grants.

More than 2,000 students have received funding so far.

Students can get financial assistance to cover tuition for credit and noncredit courses plus added expenses if eligible. In addition, grants can also assist with expenses such as food, housing and utility costs, transportation costs, childcare and healthcare.

To apply, students are to complete an online application on the myLCCC portal. Click on Apply for Scholarships under Student Resources on the left side of the screen. Or: www.LCCC.edu/scholarships and click the Apply for Scholarships link.
