Grant Aid

TRIO Student Support Services awards Grant Aid, which is made possible through funds from the U.S. Department of Education, to eligible TRIO SSS students on an annual basis.

The purpose of Grant Aid is to assist in supporting the successful progress toward and achievement of academic goals by TRIO SSS students at NC State College.
