QuickJobs Scholarships offered at Midlands Technical College

Application deadline is August 1, 2012

The Midlands Technical College Foundation is offering $100,000 in new scholarships for Midlands Technical College’s Corporate and Continuing Education QuickJobs programs. The scholarships provide tuition assistance for unemployed or underemployed residents of Lexington, Richland and Fairfield counties.

QuickJobs programs prepare participants for high-demand careers in as short a time possible, often in less than three months. The classes are designed to offer skills training that results in industry-recognized credentials, and provide the critical training needed to move directly into employment.

The scholarship funds will support individuals whose annual earnings are below 80 percent of the median family income for the college’s service area, and will be awarded through an application process beginning immediately. The scholarship application and more information can be found at www.mtctraining.com/QuickJobs_Scholarship.htm.
