Are you unemployed or underemployed? Do you need some updates on your computer skills to move up in your current employment?

Community & Continuing Education has a small fund, The Work Training Scholarship, available for people who are unemployed or underemployed to update their computer and business skills. Community Education non-credit classes are available to update your computer skills, help you understand how to start a business, build and maintain a website, and even ski, snowboard, or personal trainer certification.

This scholarship is funded by private donations. Scholarships are awarded on an ongoing basis, until finding is exhausted. There are scholarships for $250, for non-credit Community Education classes costing up to $1000, and $500, for online certification non-credit classes costing over $1000. Students are responsible for any costs above the $250 and $500 programs.
