Thirty percent of the 46.8 million job openings created by the year 2018 will require some college or a two-year associate degree. CTE is an essential component in filling these job openings. The jobs of today require advanced skills and technical training. Students wanting to stay competitive in the job market need specific training, education, and skills to compete successfully.

This scholarship award will give each recipient a jump-start for postsecondary training and open many doors of opportunity, now and in the future.”
