Texas Talent Connection Grant
This year, Embry-Riddle Worldwide, in partnership with Alamo Community Colleges, was awarded the Texas Talent Connection Grant which provides scholarship funding for accelerated skills training to Texas students in Bexar and Comal Counties. Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s initiative is to create “an environment where entrepreneurs and workers have the freedom to aspire, to innovate, to grow, and to prosper.”
ERAU Worldwide’s unique Aero-Accelerate Workforce Skills Training Initiative is made possible through robust partnerships with Alamo Integrated Basic Education Skills Training (I-BEST program) in the Alamo Community College District, Workforce Center of Excellence and Workforce Solutions Alamo (American Job Center Network).
The Aero-Accelerate Workforce Skills Training Initiative will provide scholarships to approximately 150 individuals a year in Bexar County and Comal County with the expectation to expand outreach across the San Antonio Metropolitan area over the next three years for a total of $1,500,000 in grant funding for additional program and scholarship support.
