Students seeking an affordable, career-ready educational pathway will soon have more options from which to choose. Starting this fall, Georgia’s technical colleges will offer even more diplomas and certificates associated with the tuition-free HOPE Career Grant. There are now 17 high-demand fields that qualify – up from 12. They range from automotive to computers, construction, cybersecurity, dental assisting, health sciences, industrial maintenance, nursing, manufacturing, paramedicine, welding, and many more. The additional programs were approved by the State Board of the Technical College System earlier this month. For a listing of the HOPE Career Grant educational areas offered at Columbus Technical College, visit the Financial Aid webpage.
“The mission of Columbus Technical College is to provide affordable, career-ready education,” said President Lorette Hoover. “Expanding the number of programs offered through the tuition-free HOPE Career Grant will make that goal more attainable for everyone.”
