Nurse Aide $1,200 Scholarships Deadline June 16

June 16 is the deadline to apply for a full tuition scholarship for Certified Nurse Aide training at Grayson College. Scholarship funding is available thanks to an on-going grant from the Texas Workforce Commission’s Skills Development Fund COVID-19 Special Initiative program. These scholarships are intended to assist individuals and employers by providing the training needed to quickly enter the workforce in the essential healthcare industry.

“Grayson College is proud to be the only college in the state to use COVID-19 Special Initiative funds to provide workforce training scholarships in our community,” GC President Dr. Jeremy McMillen said. “This funding makes vital training in high-demand healthcare occupations available to more students, meet local employers’ needs and support the economy across Texoma.” 

Spring 2021 Certified Nurse Aide students practicing skills

Scholarships are available for any of two upcoming Certified Nurse Aide training courses: June 28 to August 4 or June 29 to August 5. All training will be held using a hybrid model. Most coursework will be completed online with limited in-person classes to fulfill the mandated skills portions of the training.

Scholarship recipients must also seek employment as a Certified Nurse Aide immediately following successful course completion.

To date, more than 100 students have benefited from the Skills Development Fund COVID-19 Special Initiative scholarships. Those receiving the full tuition scholarship receive job search assistance as a complement to the training. Prospective students interested in the no-cost training can learn more and access the scholarship application at grayson.edu/cwl or by calling the Center for Workplace Learning at (903) 463-8765.
