Richland Community College Perkins CTE Student Support Grant Application

The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) is a federal program that supports rigorous Career & Technical programs that prepare students for high-skill, high-tech, high demand careers. Each semester, a limited amount of Perkins CTE Student Support Grant funds may be made available to help Richland students overcome specific barriers to success. These funds are contingent upon federal and state allocation and typically do not exceed a value of $150, but circumstances of dire need are considered. Applications are not accepted in the month of June. Perkins CTE Student Support Grant funds will only be awarded to provide students with specific equipment, supplies or uniforms required for a CTE course or program, transportation assistance, travel support and textbooks. The Perkins CTE Support Grant funds the rental/loaning of textbooks and equipment that must be returned to Richland.
