9 September 2020 Frederick County News

The needs of Lord Fairfax Community College’s (LFCC) most vulnerable students will continue to be met thanks to additional funding in the form of a federal Student Support Services (SSS) grant of $1.47 million from the U.S. Department of Education. 

Each year between this fall and August 2025, $294,725 will be distributed to the college’s TRIO program at the Middletown Campus.

LFCC’s TRIO program serves students who are low-income, first-generation college students, or students who have a disability. There are currently 160 students participating in the program.

The TRIO program offers specialized services, including academic advising, transfer planning, tutoring, financial aid assistance, financial literacy and college success skills for students. Additionally, TRIO can also help with emergency funding, individualized coaching, and socio-cultural opportunities.

Students interested in learning more about the TRIO program or applying should visit lfcc.edu/trio.
