Workforce Development / Continuing Education
Workforce Development/Continuing Education courses consist of short-term, non-credit, non-degree courses and programs to meet the needs of a diverse adult community.
These needs may be related to job training/upgrading of job skills or personal enrichment and lifelong learning.
Need Financial Aid for Workforce Development Classes?
Short-term Workforce Development (STWD) Grants help students get started in high-demand fields such as Nurse Aide, CDL Truck Driving, and Welding. This grant can help students cover costs such as textbooks, childcare, transportation, and testing fees that may not be covered under other programs or scholarships. STWD Grants can be used for current or upcoming courses through the Division of Continuing Education (up to $750.00 maximum).
Golden LEAF has been a steady hand providing resources to increase the economic opportunity for the state’s rural and economically distressed communities through a variety of grantmaking including building human infrastructure through workforce training and scholarships.
Scholarships are available to students from qualifying counties, who demonstrate financial need, to help them attend college at participating North Carolina public or private institutions or community colleges. Golden LEAF’s goal is for scholarship students to gain the talent, knowledge and skills needed to help their communities thrive.
Students from any qualifying county (see link below) may be eligible for the Golden Leaf Scholarship.

- Please note that funds for this scholarship have probably been exhausted as of 5/20/22
Students will also need to have a current FAFSA on file with the college.
Some programs may not qualify for the GEER or Golden LEAF scholarship, but there may be other options available.
