GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College has extended eligibility for its “Stay Local” scholarships to first-time freshmen students throughout North Carolina.

“We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused students in many cases to want to attend college closer to home,” said Lindsay Latham ’08, senior director of student financial services. “This is our way of helping North Carolina students who wish to attend college closer to home to do so.”

The scholarships are available to any student who:

  • is a North Carolina resident;
  • has been accepted and is enrolling at Greensboro College as a first-time freshman for Fall 2020, and
  • who has filled out the FAFSA (Free Application for Student Financial Aid), found at fafsa.gov, using Greensboro College’s code number, 002930.

Students receiving Say Yes to Education scholarships in Guilford County will not be eligible.

Students who are eligible for the Federal Pell grant according to the 2020-2021 FAFSA will receive a combination of federal, state, and institutional gift aid equal to the amount of full tuition.

Students who are not eligible for the Federal Pell grant could receive a Stay Local Scholarship ranging from $500 to $2,500, based on financial need.

Stay Local scholarships were first made available to students from Guilford County and seven surrounding counties earlier this spring.

For more information, contact the college’s Office of Financial Aid at 336-272-7102, ext. 5217, or financialaid@greensboro.edu.
