Greater access through scholarships and special initiatives

Skyrocketing academic costs are among the barriers that make it increasingly difficult for students to pursue post-secondary education, particularly low-income and minority students.

Fifty-one percent (51%) of all CCBC students receive some form of financial aid and the college is firmly committed to improving access by increasing the availability of scholarship support. The CCBC Foundation and College Opportunity Grant Program awarded over $3.1 million in scholarship support to over 6,700 deserving students during FY14-FY15. However, more funding is needed to support the 60,000 plus students enrolled at CCBC.
