The North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges recently approved a $72,750 allocation from the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Scholarship Fund to Montgomery Community College. These funds were made available through the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act and awarded to the North Carolina Office of the Governor by the U.S. Department of Education.

The College will use these funds for scholarships to eligible community college students pursuing high-demand workforce training programs within nine of MCC’s workforce pathways leading to a state or industry-recognized credential: automotive, construction, criminal justice, emergency medical services, healthcare, industrial/manufacturing, information technology, transportation, and fire and rescue services.
