Workforce Development Grant benefits future nurses and teachers

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Eligible technical college students across the state will soon receive an extra $250 or $500 per semester with little to no work on their part.

The new Strategic Industries Workforce Development Grant offers this extra cash to students in enrolled in one of three eligible programs.

Southwest Georgia Technical College offers two of the three programs, Early Childhood Care and Education and Practical Nursing.

"Students don't have to do anything extra to apply for this grant as long as they are enrolled in the eligible program and receiving Hope Grant, they'll receive the amount that they are eligible for. Eight hours or less and they will get $250. Nine credit hours or more and they will get $500," said Financial Aid Director Amy Scoggins.

And starting this fall, the qualifying GPA for the HOPE Grant will change from 3.0 to 2.0.

Southwest Georgia Technical College is now registering students for fall semester which begins August 20th.
