A-B Tech Community College has a scholarship for individuals who have experienced a job loss or reduced income as a result of Covid-19 that can help start a new career this spring.
The A-B Tech Works Scholarship is available on a first-come, first-served basis for the Spring Semester only. Students may still qualify for late start, which begins March 10. The scholarship is intended for current, returning, or new students. Applicants may be enrolled as full-time or part-time students.
These funds were made available to A-B Tech and other colleges by Congress under Section 18004(a)(2) of the Education Stabilization Fund of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
For students interested in short-term training, the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Scholarship Program provides scholarships for eligible community college workforce continuing education students pursuing high-demand workforce training programs.
