Denison, Texas –  The Grayson College Center for Workplace Learning has set Sunday, October 25th as the scholarship application deadline for full tuition scholarships for two of its essential healthcare certificate programs. 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 excited about working with the Texas Workforce Commission to use COVID-19 Special Initiative funds to provide no-cost, high-value training to our community,” GC President Dr. Jeremy McMillen said. “This funding allows us to make vital training in these high-demand occupations available to even more students, meet local employers’ needs and support the economy across Texoma.” 

Scholarships are available for Spring 2021 Patient Care Technician and Pharmacy Technician training programs. These essential training programs begin as soon as January 19, 2021. Scholarships will also be available for the Certified Nurse Aide program with an application period expected to open in March 2021. 

All training will be held using a hybrid model. Most coursework will be completed online with limited in-person classes to fulfill the required skills portions of the training. GC is following strict health and safety protocols for any in-person training, including temperature checks and the requirement for students and staff to wear masks.

To date, 93 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.
