Cheyenne, Wyoming – Laramie County Community College has received additional funding from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III, that has been designated to support students enrolled for the fall semester at the college. The LCCC COVID-19 Fall 2021 Emergency Grant is designed to provide economic relief to students that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Grant funds may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance, or to assist students that are experiencing financial hardships including, but not limited to: tuition and fees; food; housing (rent/utilities); books and supplies; technology related needs; health care, including mental health; and child care.

LCCC COVID-19 Fall 2021 Emergency Grant criteria include:

  • Students enrolled in an LCCC degree, credit diploma, or certificate program for the Fall 2021 Semester
  • Students enrolled in specific non-credit workforce training courses for Fall 2021
  • Citizens, non-citizens, and international students
  • Students enrolled in online, hybrid, or in-person classes (any combination)
  • Students that have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and have a financial need for an allowable expense

Grant amounts will be based on the student’s enrollment status at the time of awarding and the student’s financial need as determined by the 2021/2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students with exceptional financial need, such as students that receive Pell Grants, will receive priority consideration.
