Durham Tech Promise Scholarship Expands
Program gives $1,000 a year for two years
More students will be able to access the Durham Tech Promise Scholarship, which was recently expanded to cover select continuing education programs at Durham Technical Community College, including carpentry, cosmetology, culinary and massage therapy. The Durham Tech Promise Scholarship provides up to $1,000 a year for two years for eligible students, with funds being applied first toward the student’s tuition and fees.
Previously, only students in credit programs (also called curriculum programs) were able to earn the scholarship. These programs tend to take multiple semesters to complete and result in a degree or diploma, while a continuing education, or noncredit, course is often taken for professional development, takes less time to complete and produces a certification of completion. The expansion features 20 noncredit programs, which were selected to help fill the local workforce need in their respective fields.
