Tri-C Awarded Grant to Support Foster Youth

CLEVELAND, May 24, 2019: A state grant awarded to Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) will help students from the foster care system pursue their dreams of higher education.

The Short-Term Certificate Foster Youth Grant provides funding to help students from foster care earn credentials and certificates that will help them achieve academic and career goals. The Ohio Department of Higher Education announced the grant award today.

Tri-C is among 16 community colleges and three universities in Ohio receiving funding for the program. The state divided $385,000 equally among the institutions.

The grant dollars will provide financial support for eligible students to allow them to complete a short-term certificate program. The programs are designed to take less than one year, but can provide the skills and knowledge to help students get a jump on a successful future.

Ohio Department of Higher Education Chancellor Randy Gardner said supporting foster youth and families is a priority of Governor Mike DeWine’s administration.

“I’m pleased that we are able to provide some additional support to help our higher education partners assist students who have been in foster care programs,” Gardner said. “These grants can make a difference in the lives of students who deserve our best efforts.”

The announcement of the grant coincides with National Foster Care Month.
