North Carolina Legislative Tuition Grant

The North Carolina Legislative Tuition Grant Program was designed by the General Assembly to help residents who plan to attend an independent, nonprofit institution in North Carolina to pay the higher cost of tuition and other related education costs.


The tuition grant is not based on financial need. The award amount is determined by the North Carolina General Assembly and the grant is administered by the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority. For a full-time student at an independent NC institution for the 2007-2008 academic year, the tuition grant is $1,950; part-time students may be eligible for a pro-rated amount.
