NC Longleaf Commitment Grant

The Longleaf Commitment is a grant program for 2021 North Carolina high school graduates who will attend one of our state’s “Great 58” community colleges starting in the Fall 2021 semester. High school students may be eligible to receive this grant – not a loan – for tuition and fees toward a degree or to attain transfer credit. Full-time eligible students are guaranteed to receive $700 to $2,800 per year, for a total of two years. Less than full-time students may receive a partial award. The Longleaf Commitment Grant Program ends at the conclusion of the 2023 spring semester.

No additional application is needed, as award amounts and eligibility are determined by completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Eligibility Requirements

  • Graduate from a North Carolina high school in 2021
  • Be a North Carolina resident for tuition purposes
  • Be a first-time college student (Career & College Promise (CCP) and Early/Middle College High School students are eligible)
  • Enroll in a curriculum program during the 2021-22 academic year
  • Enroll in at least 6 credit hours per semester
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for 2021-22
  • Have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from $0 – $15,000. (“EFC” is based upon student’s FAFSA determination)
  • Renew FAFSA for the 2022-23 academic year and meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements of the college
