NEW GRANT OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS TO GET A FREE EDUCATION IN WEST VIRGINIA

The West Virginia Legislature just made paying for a high-quality certificate or associate degree a whole lot easier through the creation of the WV Invests Grant program! Sometimes referred to as the “free community college” bill, this is a “last dollar in” program – which means students use all of their other federal and/or state grant awards first, and WV Invests will cover the remaining costs for tuition and fees at West Virginia community and technical colleges. With 3/4 of jobs in the current economy requiring postsecondary education or training, this grant program is designed to help more West Virginians earn the credentials they need to get jobs that will allow them to live and work right here at home.

Please see the attached document for more information regarding this great opportunity or stop by and talk with Mrs. Murphy!
