- New Jersey’s Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDOL) recently announced a $2 million grant opportunity for organizations in the state that create “degree apprenticeship” programs.
- Such program allow apprentices to earn credit toward an associate, bachelor’s or graduate degree while participating in a U.S. Department of Labor Registered Apprenticeship Program or following the completion of one, according to NJDOL. The grant is designed to provide financial assistance to those who are participating in a registered apprenticeship and who are enrolled in a degree program simultaneously.
- The state is permitting a broad category of organizations to apply for funding, including employers, trade associations, institutions of higher learning and economic development organizations. The deadline for applications is April 3.
