This scholarship is available for a limited number of people who are unemployed or underemployed to update their computer and business skills.

Community Education non-credit classes also offer certification courses to help you update your computer skills, understand how to start a business, build and maintain a website, and even become a ski, snowboard, or a certified personal trainer!
