C-TEC Announces 2nd Year of New Scholarship Program for Adult Students

Adults seeking to up-skill or re-skill into high-demand, high-wage careers can now get help with
paying for their training at C-TEC’s Postsecondary Center.
C-TEC just announced the second year of a partnership with the Ohio Department of Higher
Education to provide grant funding of up to $2,000 per student in training programs that are
less than a year. Grants are awarded based on need to those under and un-employed who are
seeking to gain a new or upgraded skill quickly. Last year, C-TEC was able to award more than
$70,000 in grants to students.
Students do not have to fill out the FAFSA to qualify. Funds can be used to cover the cost of
tuition and fees, potentially paying for the entire certificate program.
The short-term certificate programs offered at C-TEC’s Postsecondary Center are industry focused and designed to prepare adults for work immediately. In addition, students can use this
funding to jump start their training by continuing their education in one of C-TEC’s full-time
training programs for adults.
The application is open now, and awards are applied to enrollment dates starting July 1, 2022
through June 30, 2023.
Each eligible adult student can receive one award, up to $2,000, per fiscal year to cover their
training program. Training programs are open to adults with a high school diploma, or
