Undergraduate Financial Aid
Neighborhood Grant Program
For students who have been out of school and think that a college diploma is out of reach, Piedmont College has a financial aid program that could put them back on the path to earning a bachelor’s degree.
For qualified students, the Neighborhood Grant Program will cover 50 percent of tuition during the fall and spring semesters and a prorated amount during the summer semester. (Does not apply to the Leadership Studies program.)
To qualify, applicants must live in one of the counties surrounding Piedmont College’s Demorest campus. Click here to see if your county qualifies. Applicants must be at least 25 years old by the start of the term and seeking their first bachelor’s degree as commuting students attending Piedmont’s main campus in Demorest.
Since most students are also eligible for financial aid from state and federal programs, many who qualify for the Neighborhood Grant Program can enroll while incurring little to no student loans.
The number of students receiving grants is based on available funds, so interested students should apply a soon as possible.
