U.S. Department of Labor Awards $900,000 Grant for South Carolina Apprenticeship Programs

There is certainly no such thing as too much good news.

Over the past few months, we’ve been excited to announce new initiatives and partnerships, such as our recent collaboration with Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana.

This week, we have some more great news to share. The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration has awarded a $900,000 grant to the South Carolina Technical College System for the purposes of increasing and diversifying apprenticeships within the Palmetto State.

The grant, which is part of the ApprenticeshipUSA State Expansion Grant, is directed towards efforts to increase apprenticeships as a workforce development strategy and post-secondary career path. The grant will also go towards promoting STEM Premier as well as the SC Future Makers program - which is powered by STEM Premier.  

This financial support will go a long way towards increasing awareness of apprenticeship programs as well as help students, schools, and businesses connect with each other to promote these opportunities.
