A portion of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF III) made available to Bladen Community College by the American Rescue Plan (ARP) will be awarded to all students enrolled during the Spring 2022 academic term. This includes students enrolled in specific Economic and Workforce Development classes and high school programs!

Direct student payments will be made to assist in the cost of equipment, books, technology, transportation, child care, food, etc. unless students choose to apply their portion of the HEERF III funds to tuition/fees for the spring term. The funds will be awarded in addition to any scholarships, sponsorships, state or federal financial aid for which the student is eligible.
